Making Friends the UP Way

It was a small, random act of kindness. And it made Jacob Guasco's day.
Jacob is a 16-year-old railfan, and his favorite railroad is Union Pacific. He even has a Union Pacific jacket that, on this day, he wore while grocery shopping with his mother. Shortly after the two entered their local Walmart, they were approached by Aamund (AJ) Bouvia, a conductor with UP. "Do you work for Union Pacific?" he asked the young man. Jacob was happy to be mistaken for a railroader!
