Overview

Power plant located between Lynndyl and Delta, Utah (rail service is from Lynndyl).

Rail car maintenance facility located near Springville, Utah.

IPP power plant is owned by a consortium of cities that includes Los Angeles, through its Department of Water & Power. LADWP bought the Nevada Northern Railway in preparation for the construction of rail-served power plants at Thousand Springs (north of Wells) and Cherry Creek (along the Nevada Northern), both in Nevada. The power plants remain in their permitting phase, and construction has not yet started. NN 401 was moved to IPP near Delta to allow its occasional use as an in-plant switcher.
