Kennecott 407
Title:  Kennecott 407
Description:  Kennecott Copper 125-ton electrics 407 and 402 were on an ore train at Copperton Yard, just outside of the big copper mine at Bingham Canyon. They will haul the train 28 miles to one of the mills near the Great Salt Lake. The 3200-horsepower locomotives were built by General Electric in December 1947 and retired in March 1982. A carman is attaching ground air to the train on the adjacent track. This was the normal practice, so that the locomotives wouldn't have to pump up the air after they coupled on. (date approximate)
