The Utah Railway owns the only six MK50-3's built, and these together with five ex Australian SD50S's drag 15,000 ton coal trains up the 2.4% grade to Soldier Summit using all of the units roaring 38,500 horsepower creating an unforgettable spectacle. The line over Soldier Summit belongs to Union Pacific, and UP trains and BNSF trains on trackage rights, as well as the Utah Railway use the line.
