For Union Pacific, ensuring the safety of everyone around the railroad is of the utmost importance, but even off the railroad, life can take an unexpected turn.
The virtual program is designed to educate young drivers on practicing safety behind the wheel and creating smart habits, such as putting down their devices and paying attention to the road, especially around railroad tracks.
Wilson, Koko and Brewster, the stars of "Chuggington: Tales from the Rails," are spreading awareness about rail safety to preschoolers and elementary students, their parents and teachers.
The goal: Take the data collected across more than 32,000 miles of track, plug it into a computer, and accurately predict which track section will break next. They call it predictive analytics, and it’s the science of harvesting vast amounts of data about the past and using it to predict the future.
