Service Notes

Bingham & Garfield Railway No. 302 purchased new for $13,840.
To Utah Copper No. 302.
Commonly listed as transferred to NCCCo in Oct 1937, but more likely in 1929 concurrent with the Bingham pit railway electrification (1928-1929) that released many steam engines for NCCCo Nevada Mines Division and Chino Mines Division. Also, a note in the NCCCo files indicates NCCCo No. 300 was overhauled (reflued and relagged) in 1931.
