Remarks & Notes 
38500 Horsepower! Eleven big DC traction locomotives lift 13000 tons of Carbon County coal up the 2.4% grade of the Price River Canyon. 5 motors up front and 6 more manned helpers 2/3 deep challenge the mountain. For a Century the Utah Railway moved coal hoppers and gondolas up Soldier Summit. The coal has fired blast furnaces, kilns and turbines. Changing politics and technology have pushed the Utah Railway coal off this mountain, making its cliffside home of Martin a Ghost Town. I am glad I was there to see it...... I will miss the Utah Railway!
