NEWS ITEMS OF LOCAL INTERST
Union Pacific to Spend
for 1923 Improvements
To care for increased business and to better serve
its patrons by handling traffic without delay, even
during times of peak business, the Union Paciflic
has entered upon a program of improvements for
1923 estimated to cost $42, 817, 708, the principal items
of which are:

Bridge betterments , 2,024,255
Ballasting and other road improvements. . .2,454,880
Total ; ,....$42,817,708
NeW construction includes a line from Lund to
Cedar City, Utah, opening up a territory rich in
agriculture, iron and the scenic attractions of Zion
National Park, . Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks;
also an alternate main line through r.oise, Idaho and
a branch in the' Idaho Falls District. Aline from
Delta to Fillmore, Utah, not included in the fore
going, was completed last month.
The additional main track will provide double
track from Omaha to Ogden and Salt Lake, except
for 27 miles. With connections east of Omaho, it
means 1,515 miles of double track westward from
Chicago, the longest continuous stretch of double
track in the United States over which solid through
trains are run.
New equipment includes 78 . freight locomotives
and 57 all-steel passenger train cars. All main line
through passenger trains will now be all-steel equipped
These expenditures are in addition to 4,500 box and
automobile cars, 45 steel passenger train cars, 80
locomotives and 100 tank cars, purchased last year
and delivered this year. Nor do the figures include
8,630 new refrigerator cars of Pacific Fruit Express
Company owned jointly by the Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific, purchased in 1922 and 1923 that
will be available for the 1923 perishable traffic.
These improvements are in addition to the regular
maintenance program. They will be made from new
capital and not from earnings. The work will give
employment to a vast number of persons in the
territory served. .
This program is entered upon with a firm
belief in the prosperity of the Western states
and a confidence that the people in the terri
tory served by the Union Pacific will co-operate
in maintaining the railroad at a point
of greatest effectiveness.
Constructive suggestions are always welcome.

Commencing June 1st, the
Safety Section of the American
Railway Association is staging
an educational campaign for the
prevention of railroad grade
crossing accidents. The cam
paign will continue witn vigor
for four months. It is hoped
that accidents at railroad cross
ings will not only be reduced to
o' minimum during those four
months, but that the results
afterward will reflect the bene
fits of the campaign.
In the United States in the
past five years, 9,101 persons
have been killed and 24,208 seri
ously injured on account of col
lissions between vehicles and
trains, cars or
