Navajo Generating Station/Black Mesa and Lake Powell Railroad closing

News reports say the Navajo Generating Station in Arizona will be shuttered by 2019:

Of interest because it is fed by the electric powered, isolated, Black Mesa and Lake Powell Railroad that operates E-60 locomotives.  Had always been on my personal bucket list to see, as growing up in Ohio, I used to spend summers camping around the similar (and sometimes fully automated) and now shutdown Muskingum electric RR.

It would be interesting to know what the speed limit is on the Black Mesa & Lake Powell electric-powered trains.

Less than 55mph.  The couple times we drove past and there was a train, we caught it and passed it, and my dad always drive under the speed limit.

Now, aren't these also the trains that are completely remote controlled (unmanned)?
