The Utah Railway also owns a subsidiary railroad, the Salt Lake City Southern Railroad, serving over 30 customers on over 25 miles (40 km) of track between Salt Lake City and Draper, Utah. In addition, switching services are provided in Ogden and elsewhere. The earliest logo was simply the words "Utah Railway Company", spelled out on the locomotives and cabooses, and "Utah Coal Route" on the drop-bottom gondolas. On paper, however, the logo for many years was a black circle with a white background. The wording and image in these circular logos changed over the years.

William John Gilbert Gould grew up with a driving ambition to be an engineer. In 1908 he was hired by the Denver & Rio Grande as an underage fireman. In 1917 he achieved his dream and began running engines, first for the D&RG and later for the Utah Railway. He pursued this occupation until the 1950s, experiencing the last days of steam and the first of diesel. After retirement he, at his son's urging, began writing vignettes and longer stories that focused on his trade, his peers, and the adventures he had or observed. He was a natural storyteller, and his recollections are saturated with occupational lore and reveal much about the history of the western railroads.
