1923 estimated to cost $-12,817, 708, the principal items
of which are:

Additional yaid and passing tracks ...3,001,022
Shops, enginehouses, tools and machinery .....3,992,621

agriculture, iron and the scenic attractions of Zion
National Park, Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks;
also an alternate main line through Boise, Idaho and
a branch in the Idaho Falls District. A line 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

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. . llietj will be made from new
capital and not from earnings. The work will give
employment to a vast number of persons in the
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.
