Trains carry nearly everything families and businesses depend on – raw materials such as lumber and steel, chemicals to purify drinking water and finished goods such as TVs and refrigerators. Railroads haul America’s food supply, 70 percent of U.S.-produced automobiles and 70 percent of the coal that produces more than half the nation’s electricity. Union Pacific emphasizes excellent customer service, offers competitive routes from all major West Coast and Gulf Coast ports to eastern gateways, connects with Canada’s rail systems and is the only railroad serving all six major gateways to Mexico, making it North America’s premier rail franchise.
