Westbound Wednesday - Utah Railroad Plenty of Horses, Late 1990s
Author: FiveChime

A few miles west of Helper Utah on the former Rio Grande main.
Westbound coal heading for Salt Lake City area. Some of the units
shown here are now working on former Rock Island running east
from Limon, Colorado.

Now that's some train!  If only it had a caboose.  Even after all these years I miss seeing one at the end of a train.  It's like ending a sentence without a punctuation mark

Great video Jim of a trainfull of coal headed for the Intermountain Power Plant (IPP) outside Delta, UT. I caught one of those trains around that time just east of Colton, UT when I was trying to visit Helper for the first time. Didn’t make it to Helper that trip because of the westbound train. I flipped a U and chased it all the way to Spanish Fork/Springville.

Almost everything in your video has changed, except the tracks. The Utah Railway doesn’t haul coal there anymore. The MK500’s have all gone east as you mentioned. UP hauls the IPP coal, until the power plant finishes converting to natural gas. And the power plant in your video has been torn down.
