Utah Railway's six MK50-3s lived on the roster for about 16 years, from 2001 to 2017. Utah Railway has typically leased its power, rather than buy it outright. The long term leases usually last anywhere from 10-15 years. That's how Utah Railway has had such a colorful variety of power over the years, including Alcos, ex-BN F45s, ex-SP SD45s, SD40s, and these MK50-3s. With their coal contracts complete and the leases up, the MK50-3s are being shipped to the KYLE Railroad.
