Remarks & Notes 
Utah Ry #5003 is slowly pulling into the yard at Martin, Utah with a strange train indeed. Normal URy unit coal trains have a lot of coal hoppers; enough to require 4 big units up front and 5 or 6 more as mid train helpers. Not today, though. Today’s train had 20 empty coal hoppers and 14 tank cars. This eastbound empty train took the switch at Utah Ry. Junction just outside Helper and entered the URy Martin yard. It shoved the tanks into a yard track and then backed out onto the UP Provo sub again. Then it went east through Helper and Price to the Castle Valley spur and out to the Savage loadout. After loading its 20 cars the 5003 returned west over Soldier Summit to Provo. Only 20 coal loads and no helpers; strange stuff indeed.
