The use of leased SD40s and SD40-2s began in October 1977, with the Alco units being used on mine runs and in helper service until April 1982, when the Wattis Branch was relaid with heavier rail. Leased UP SD40s and SD40-2s were used until the arrival of the ex BN F45s in April 1985, and the ex SP SD45s in June 1985.
