Remarks & Notes 
In a panned photograph, Deseret Power Railway E60C-2 DPR-1 leads a westbound unit coal train that is about to crest the grade into Coyote Basin west of Mormon Gap, Colorado, on October 22, 2015. DPR-1 is a General Electric E60C-2 locomotive acquired from GE from part of a cancelled order of the 6,000-h.p. machines for Nationales de Mexico, intended for use on a newly-constructed line out of Mexico City. Electric operations on this line was never realized—much of the E60C-2 fleet was used only briefly—or never put in service. Of the 39 locomotives built in 1982-83 for NdeM, 28 were finally placed in service on a portion of the intended route in 1994, and six were soon wrecked.
