March 27, 1978
In 1978 Kennecott Copper was actively using the Nevada Northern to haul ore from pits at Ruth, Nevada to the Smelter at McGill, using their own rolling stock. "Nevada Mines Division" can be seen below the cab windows, as eastbound RS-2 no. 103 with a load of ore for the smelter passes the camera.
