Remarks & Notes 
The Deseret Power Railway is seen at the Deserado Mine loadout with all four E60C's. Todays train departed a little on the later side at 11am, but it worked out nicely for the westbound chase to the power plant. Normal operations are Mon-Thur on duty at 6am with an afternoon train on duty at 1600. If you decide to check it out, I cannot stress how important it is to go to the Mine first to see if the train is there loading. You will hear them talking on 457.000 and they will give a rollby upon departure. If the train is gone by 8:30am, find a spot on the main line and wait for it to return east. Running time is 1:15 at 40mph. This is a chase-able operation with a somewhat aggressive driving style. Blue Mountain Energy put out this excellent video of the entire operation, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOzzoRNSeFQ
