Nevada Northern
Ely, Nevada
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 Alco RS-2 no. 103 with a load of ore for the smelter passes the camera. No. 103 is one of 9 RS-2s owned by Kennecott Copper, numbered 101-109.
