In 1918, Utah Railway received three 2-8-8-0 locomotives, ordered in late 1916 by the Union Pacific Equipment Association. Utah Railway had asked for UP's assistance in the design of these locomotives, with Utah Railway soon to assume the operation of its own trains. UP evaluated the available designs, and determined that the design of fifteen B&O EL-series delivered in 1916 was a good match for the projected and similar service slow speed coal drags on Utah Railway. These three Utah Railway locomotives were very similar to later UP's MC-class, but were built by Baldwin and were about 12,000 pounds lighter (weight on drivers) than the sixteen locomotives delivered in 1918 to UP and OSL. Utah Railway used MC-2 as the class for their locomotives, the same as UP's class.

General Notes:

a. 462,500 pounds weight-on-drivers; 702,700 pounds total engine and tender weight
b. Utah Railway MC-57 26-41/32 463 S.S. Class; also MC-2 Class; also "Mallet Consolidation Freight Locomotive".
c. Power reverse added in 1942.
d. Standard stoker.
e. Baldwin order number: 11252; ordered by Union Pacific Equipment Association on 19 December 1916
