These guidelines are provided by Union Pacific to assist our customers in the design and construction of industrial tracks. Facilities that involve unit or shuttle train operations may utilize more stringent standards. Union Pacific is committed to working with you to develop the most efficient, cost-effective rail plan to meet your transportation needs.

This technical manual and its drawings will be revised periodically. It is the responsibility of the User to update his/her copy with the most current information.
