Remarks & Notes 
The control stand of former EMCO/LTV Steel Alco 7222 complete with banana stickers and a ominous calendar from 2001 the year the mine closed. The 7222 (i.e EMCO 602, EMCO 352) was assigned to mine duties at the EMCO / LTVSMC plantsite for it's entire career. It was the only one of the three C420's on the roster that did not see duty on the mainline and was assigned to the mine hauls for it's entire life at EMCO / LTVSMC until the plant closed for good in 2001.
