Recent Changes on Our Site

The rail industry has been at Alert Level 2 since the end of 2001. At this level, the security rules provide that the rail industry suspend tracing capabilities for restricted commodities by unauthenticated users. As a result, Union Pacific has eliminated information about equipment containing restricted commodities from unsecure applications. Please review our Security page for more information on Security Level Updates (User ID and password required).

Search features allow interested parties to narrow their selections based on such categories as location, size and zoning. You will be asked to establish a user name and password, and any information you provide will be used solely for the purpose of aiding a site selection process.
