Four O'Clock Factoid: It's Electric!

Four O'Clock Factoid is a daily feature on Track Twenty-Nine helping to get you through the workday with a bit of useless knowledge.

The Black Mesa and Lake Powell Railroad is a private freight railroad operating in Arizona. It is noteworthy as an American railroad in that it is electrified. The line is used to carry coal from mines on the Black Mesa to a power plant near Lake Powell. It was constructed in the 1970s and is completely disconnected from the rest of the American rail network.
