    Thanksgiving Holiday Operating Plan - Updated November 16, 2009 Union Pacific plans to have modified operations during the Thanksgiving Day weekend. This includes operations from 11:01 p.m. Wednesday, November 25, 2009 through 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 28, 2009. During this time we will operate coal, soda ash and potash, grain, military and rock trains. The intermodal and automotive network will have reduced operations with selected annulments and consolidations depending on volumes. Between 11:01 p.m. Wednesday, November 25, 2009 through 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 28, 2009., most manifest and perishables trains will be held at origin. Trains enroute will operate to destination. Some yard and local operations may be curtailed based on traffic levels and customer needs. Critical customer-specific switching requests will be protected. Interchange operations will be coordinated as required with connecting railroads at all locations. If your facility requires service during the holiday, please open a Service Issue on our web site prior to close of business on Thursday, November 19, 2009. You may also contact Customer Service at 1-800-272-8777 to have them open a Service Issue on your behalf. Feedback will be provided regarding the availability of service over the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Thank you for your cooperation. On behalf of all of the employees of Union Pacific, we would like to wish you a safe and happy holiday weekend
