"Dirt train?"
Posted by Mike Danneman on November 4, 2014 
Kurt; The term “dirt train” was the common name applied to the LJP45 local running out of Helper, Utah, (and, apparently other trains elsewhere that hauled the same commodities too…) that operated to a large landfill on the Sunnyside Branch at East Carbon. These trains hauled municipal waste (garbage) and contaminated dirt, along with other waste. Contaminated dirt is sometime called “dirty dirt” and is where the nickname “dirt train” came from.
