Thousands of American families are
today realizing their hopes for
better homes. There is nothing like
lumber for solid comfort in house
building. It is durable, easy to
handle and inexpensive.
When the Union Pacific was
under construction seventy years
ago, lumber was scarce in mid
continental America. Methods of
logging were tedious and wasteful.
Transportation was difficult.
Today, modern methods of
logging and lumber manufacture,
coupled with fast, dependable
railroad transportation, make the
choicest lumber available in all
markets of America at amazingly
low prices. In a frame house of aver
age size the cost of the lumber is
only about 15 of the total
construction expense and this
includes freight charges to average
Union Pacific has played a leading
part in development of the lumber
industry. Steadily through the
years, it has bettered its schedules,
improvedits equipment, to facilitate
fast, low cost, dependable delivery
of this important commodity. It has
recently added 4,500 specially
designed cars to its lumber fleet.
Progressive steps in pace with a
progressive industry.
For better homes at minimum cost
