Uintah 50/51 - Sumpter Valley 250/251 Histories

September 12, 2017 02:09PM
Hi All,

Trying to get a correct chronological history on these two narrow gauge Mallets.

What is the correct headquarters for the Uintah Railway? Mack? Atchee?
Was the #50 taken out of service in 1939 and sold to G&H Supply Co.? The source that helped doesn't show this as the case for the #51
When was this officially retired and scrapped?
What city did these operate out of during IRCA?

Thanks,

Rich Wilkens
