Posted Date: November 15, 2012
Union Pacific plans to have modified operations during the Thanksgiving weekend. This includes operations on Thursday, November 22, 2012 through Saturday, November 24, 2012.
During this time, we will operate coal, soda ash and potash, grain, military and rock trains. The intermodal and automotive network will have reduced operations with selected annulments and consolidations depending on volumes.
Manifest and perishables train operations will vary by region:
- Northern and Western region - The majority of manifest and perishables trains originating from terminals in the Northern and Western region of the Union Pacific network will be annulled between 7:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 22 and 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 24.
- Southern region - The majority of manifest and perishables trains originating from terminals in the Southern region of the Union Pacific network will be annulled between 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 22 and 3:00 p.m. on Friday, November 23.
Trains enroute will operate to destination. Some yard and local operations may be curtailed based on traffic levels and customer needs. Critical customer-specific switching requests will be protected. Interchange operations will be coordinated as required with connecting railroads at all locations.
This operating plan is subject to change in the event of a major service interruption or weather event. Thank you for your cooperation. On behalf of all of the employees of Union Pacific, we would like to wish you a safe and happy holiday weekend.
If you have any questions please contact your Union Pacific representative.
