Remarks & Notes 
One of 3 of Kennecots unique GP39-2's that would stay at the plant site after railroad operations were sold off in 2002, I was dumbfounded to find it operating in 2019! Equipped with its recognizable high visibility cab for use in the mine, the Kennecot Utah Copper produces about 25% of the United State's copper and as such has a very large active rail operation! Not often photographed due to the railroad being almost completely on tightly watched mine property (which is a shame because the various hills and curves are amazing!) they come out of the plant a few times a week, usually to interchange with the Union Pacific. Seen here pulling up the steep hill with cars received from the UP, it was a total surprise and treat to catch this neat operation! Thanks to Andrew Wirth for the heads up!
