The Guernsey Dam and Powerplant was started on April 30, 1925 as a part of the North Platte Project, which was originally called the Sweetwater Project. The thing that is unique about this, one of the contractors, Utah Construction Co., used a Shay during the construction. It is the only record of a Shay being used in Wyoming that I can find.
The Shay, SN# 598, was a class 50-3, Std gauge, coal burner.
