Union Pacific Removes Illegal Exercise Path From Its Property

Omaha, Neb., November 17, 2005 – Union Pacific Railroad recently removed illegal construction on its property in Santa Cruz, Calif., in the Seabright and Murray area.

The illegal pedestrian exercise path constructed on railroad property was disrupting drainage and posed a safety hazard – both during its construction and for those using the illegal path.

"Trains can operate over the line at anytime. We are very concerned about the safety of those people who built this path on our property, as well as those who might use this illegal path," said Tom Jacobi, regional vice president – western region.

Union Pacific will prosecute anyone responsible for any further attempts to reconstruct a exercise path on railroad property.
