Empty approaching the mine. Yes that face needs cleaning. The 78-mile Black Mesa and Lake Powell RR is isolated from other railroads in northeastern Arizona. It's sole purpose is to haul coal from Black Mesa Mine near Kayenta, AZ to the Navajo Generating Station power plant at Page, AZ (Lake Powell). It is powered by a 50,000 Volt catenary. It has one train set that is in almost constant use.
