Our employees take great pride in their work and this is demonstrated by the initiative that Union Pacific locomotive engineers have taken in leading the Fuel Masters program and making the program an integral part of our daily operations. In the 21st century, our employees are demonstrating the trademark hands-on leadership that has positioned Union Pacific in its 145-year history as the railroad that is building America.
We all have a role to play in helping conserve fuel for our nation, and Union Pacific employees are doing it every day. In a relatively short period of time, our employees have made great strides in implementing and creating world-class energy conservation techniques that are helping us to move more freight while saving fuel. With their help we will continue to improve our efficiency while delivering the goods America needs.
