Railroads and mining in Bingham Canyon have gone hand in hand since the first railroad was constructed in the canyon in late 1873. Bingham Canyon in the early years was a gold and silver mining camp, and the railroads were small operations. Copper mining took hold in the late 1890s, and the mines, mining companies, and railroads that served them expanded rapidly. Bingham Canyon soon became the largest and richest mining district in the western United States and was the source for as much as a third of the copper mined in the nation. A variety of locomotives worked in the canyon, including a small number of Shay locomotives, several large articulated steam locomotives, and the nation’s largest roster of electric locomotives. The last Bingham Canyon ore train ran in late 2001. While the railroad tracks have been removed, the mine itself is very much in full production and remains the source for 25 percent of the nation’s copper production.

Bingham Canyon Railroads is one of the latest in Arcadia Publishing series, "Images of Rail". Like all of their publications, this series covers history of rail told mainly as extensive captions to pictures. I can't afford every book in the series and restrict my interest to West Coast railroads. This book, however, got my interest because of the high number of railroads within a small area in Utah. The railroads served a number of copper mines and pits using virtually every type of locomotive from steam, to electric, and eventually to diesel before converting almost entirely to rubber-tired surface haulers in the 1970's. Extensive use of various motive power, trestles, and tunnels make this an unusual book. Critically missing are maps of any kind. To find out where Bingham Canyon is in Utah or find out where the railroads ran, you have to go elsewhere (SPV's Railroad Atlas, Colorado & Utah, for one). This is a general failing of many Arcadia Images of Rail books, though. Most people interested in railroads also like to know where they ran. It would have been rated 5-stars with a map. This is still an excellent book and good addition to any railroad library.

Small but mighty. Don Strack has collected a treasure trove of photos showing seldom seen details of the enormous role played by railroads in creating one of the largest excavations on Earth. Whatever environmental concerns accrue to strip mining, these photos still present a fascinating history of the almost unbelievably dense railroad infrastructure--alas, almost all now gone. Especially remarkable are the early photos of the steam and electric era and the portrayal of the slow evolution of the vast industrial landscape as towns, mines, rails, and mountains shift in service of King Copper.
