THE TRAINING AND EXAMINATION PROCESS. EMPLOYEES MUST COMPLETE THE
REQUIRED EXAMINATIONS BY THE END OF THEIR BIRTH MONTH IF THE EMPLOYEE
FALLS INTO THE TRIENNIAL POLICY OR 30 DAYS PRIOR TO THE EMPLOYEE'S
RECERTIFICATION DATE ON THE LICENSE, PROVIDING THE EMPLOYEE DOES NOT
NEED A TRIENNIAL EXAM BEFORE.

EMPLOYEES WILL ARRANGE TO TAKE THEIR TRIENNIAL OR RECERTIFICATION EXAM
ON THEIR OWN TIME (UNLESS ATTENDING AN ACTUAL RULES CLASS) IN A
MANNER THAT DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH OR COMMINGLE WITH THE PERFORMANCE
OF SERVICE COVERED UNDER THE HOURS OF SERVICE LAW. TO AVOID
COMMINGLING OF HOURS OF SERVICE, EMPLOYEES MUST HAVE A PROPER
STATUTORY OFF-DUTY PERIOD BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER THE TIME ENGAGED IN
COMPLETING THE EXAMINATION. ONLY THE ACTUAL RULES EXAM IS SUBJECT TO
COMMINGLING WITH COVERD SERVICE. TIME SPENT IN STUDYING OR REVIEWING
TRAINING MATERIALS IS DONE ENTIRELY AT THE EMPLOYEE'S OWN DISCRETION
AND DOES NOT COMMINGLE WITH COVERED SERVICE.

EMPLOYEE'S DUE RECERTIFICATION ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO TAKE THE ERTT EXAM
EXCEPT WHEN PROCTORED BY A MANAGER. EMPLOYEES WHO NEED TO RECERTIFY
FOR ENGINEER CERTIFICATION OR REMOTE CONTROL OPERATOR CERTIFICATION
(FEDERAL REGULATIONS REQUIRE A MONITORED EXAM) MUST BE PROCTORED FOR
THEIR EXAM. ENGINEERS, HOSTLERS & REMOTE CONTROL OPERATORS DUE
RECERTIFICATION IN 2006 & 2007 MUST COMPLETE THEIR EXAMS (1 FOR AIR
BRAKE & 1 FOR GCOR, SAFETY, HAZMAT & SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS) AT LEAST
30 DAYS PRIOR TO THEIR BIRTHDAY TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH LICENSING
AND NO INTERRUPTION IN SERVICE.

CLASSROOM RULES TRAINING WILL BE REQUIRED FOR TE&Y EMPLOYEES THAT
HIRED OUT IN 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 AND 2005. THIS TRAINING BEGINS IN
JANUARY AND WILL BE A ONE DAY CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, REVIEW AND EXAMS
AT THE CONCLUSIONOF THE CLASS. THIS CLASS WILL ALSO SATISFY THE
RECERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS IF WITHIN THE SPECIFIC TIME LIMITS.

CLASS DATES WILL BE POSTED VIA SUPERINTENDENT BULLETINS OR BY IDS
MESSAGES (BULLETINS THAT COME OUT ON EACH TRACK WARRANT FOR BULLETINS)
PERIODICALLY TO ALLOW EMPLOYEES SOME NOTICE AS TO WHEN THE CLASSES
WILL BE. ALL TE&Y CAN ATTEND THESE CLASSES.

THE EMPLOYEE WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY COMPENSATED A BASIC DAY AFTER
COMPLETION OF THE EXAM WITH A GRADE OF 85% OR BETTER. FAILURE TO
ATTAIN A SCORE OF 85% OR HIGHER WILL REQUIRE THE EMPLOYEE TO BE
WITHHELD FROM SERVICE UNTIL TAKING A MONITORED RE-EXAMINATION.

ERTT IS LOCATED ON THE UPRR EMPLOYEE WEBSITE BY SELECTING "TRAINING &
TESTING" UNDER CREW BOARDS. YOU CAN ALSO SELECT "DEPARTMENTS", THEN
"OPERATING", THEN TE&Y TRAINING INDEX", THEN "RULES TRAINING". USE
YOUR EMPLOYEE TCS ID AND YOUR TCS PASSWORD TO ENTER THE TRAINING SITE.
EMPLOYEES HAVE UNLIMITED ACCESS TO TRAINING SUBJECTS AND PRACTICE
EXAMS AND ARE ENCOURAGED TO VISIT THE SITE FREQUENTLY. HOWEVER, THE
TESTS ARE ONLY OPEN TO EMPLOYEES WHO ARE DUE RULES EXAMS THIS YEAR.
THE TESTS MAY ALSO BE USED WITH AN EMPLOYEE'S DEVELOPMENTAL PLAN WHEN
APPROPRIATE.

TRAIN, ENGINE & YARD EMPLOYEES CAN USE THE RULES TRAINING AND STUDY
MATERIALS TO PREPARE FOR THE TRIENNIAL (OR RECERTIFICATION) RULES
EXAM. ADDITIONAL STUDY MATERIALS WILL BE ADDED PERIODICALLY, AND
EMPLOYEES ARE ENCOURAGED TO VISIT THE SITE FREQUENTLY THROUGHOUT THE
YEAR.

UNDER RULES TRAINING ON THE WEB, "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT
ERTT RULES AND PROCEDURES" & ERTT TE&Y "QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE" FULLY
EXPLAINS ERTT AND HOW TO NAVIGATE THROUGH THE SYSTEM.

IN PREPARATION FOR SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETING THE EXAMINATON, EMPLOYEES
ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO COMPLETE THE TRAINING MATERIAL IN THESE
SECTIONS OR OBTAIN A 2006 STUDY GUIDE VIA THE WEB OR FROM YOUR LOCAL
MANAGER.

THE 2006 RULES TRAINING AND EXAMS ARE VERY CHALLENGING AND ARE
DESIGNED TO TEST AND INCREASE YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF SAFETY, OPERATIONG AND
TRAIN HANDLING RULES AND PROCEDURES. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT
EMPLOYEES STUDY THE RULES PRIOR TO EXAMINATION TO ASSIST IN ENSURING
A SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DETERMINE IF A
GENERAL ORDER OR SPECIAL INSTRUCTION HAS CHANGED ANY RULE. IN
ADDITION TO THE GENERAL CODE OF OPERATING RULES, AIR BRAKE & TRAIN
HANDLING RULES, SAFETY RULES & REMOTE CONTROL RULES, THERE WILL BE
QUESTIONS REQUIRING THE USE OF SYSTEM SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS AND
HAZARDOUS MATERIAL INSTRUCTIONS, FORM - 8620.

NOTE: SEE SYSTEM SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS - ITEM 10 AND SYSTEM GENERAL
ORDERS FOR RULE REVISIONS.

ALL EMPLOYEES MUST SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THEIR MANDATORY TRIENNIAL
RULES EXAMS BY THE END OF THEIR BIRTH MONTH OR THEY WILL BE WITHHELD
FROM SERVICE PENDING RULES "PR".

THE EMPLOYEES LISTED BELOW THAT RECERTIFY IN 2007 NEEDING A TRIENNIAL
RULES EXAM IN 2006 IS DUE TO WHEN THE EMPLOYEE LAST TOOK A RULES EXAM,
WHICH WOULD BE 2003, CAUSING THE EMPLOYEE TO NEED A TRIENNIAL EXAM IN
2006. THE EMPLOYEES LISTED UNDER THIS HEADING FOR EACH MONTH NEED TO
SCHEDULE THEIR RECERTIFICATION RULES EXAMS AFTER THEIR BIRTHDAY
(EXAMS HAVE TO BE COMPLETED BY THE END OF THE BIRTH MONTH THOUGH) IN
2006 SO THE EXAMS TAKEN IN 2006 WILL COUNT TOWARDS THE RECERTIFICATION
IN 2007. PROCTORED EXAMS HAVE TO FALL WITHIN 1 YEAR OF
RECERTIFICATION DATE TO COUNT AS THE PROCTORED RECERTIFICATION RULES
EXAM.

IF YOUR NAME IS LISTED BELOW AND YOU HAVE ALREADY SUCCESSFULLY
COMPLETED THE EXAMS OR HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL
MANAGER.

PURPOSE:
AUTOMATED CREW CALLING PROCESS FOR HOUSTON SERVICE UNIT.


EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

During the week of October 26, 2003 Crew Management will begin
implementation of an Automated Crew Calling process in your area. The
new process will generate calls to affected employees by utilizing a
computer-generated voice.

* The Automated Crew Calling Process will be implemented using two
 methods:
 1. AFHT crews and selected home terminal crews (Engineer and
   Trainmen) that are marked-up and available will be dispatched and

    called automatically without crew dispatcher intervention.
 2. Deadheads, vacancies, and other manual line-ups will be completed
    by a crew dispatcher and then sent to the Automated Crew Calling
    system for calling.
* Due to the scope of the project as described above, virtually any
 Engineer or Trainman could receive a call from the Automated Crew
 Calling system after October 1, 2003.
* If the automated process is unable to locate an employee after a
 specific amount of time, the transaction is sent to CMS for further
 handling.
* The automated call will advise the employee of any special
 announcements or messages from the dispatcher.
* A letter and wallet card will be sent to all affected employees
 advising them of the new system and explaining how to use it.

When the Automated Crew Calling system calls you?

*You can either speak your responses or use the keys on your handset.
*When asked to verify your identity simply say 'Yes' or press 1.
*You will then hear the details of your assignment.
*The system will announce your potential Engineer/Conductor for the
 trip.
*The system will also voice any special announcements or messages
 from the dispatcher.
*To accept the assignment, say 'Yes' or press 1 at the prompt.
*If the system encounters a voice mail it will leave a message
 instructing you to call a toll free number.
*The dial back toll free number is, 1-800-967-7334

For a complete demonstration of the system please feel free to call
1-800-388-1921.

As a reminder, this is a new process and we are asking for your
assistance in its successful implementation. Please contact the CMS
Quality Improvement Team (CQIT) for assistance or feedback during the
implementation process at 1-866-897-7784, or email at CQIT@up.com.

PURPOSE:
NOTIFICATION OF REMOTE CONTROL IMPLEMENTATION


EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

The Houston area will begin training and implementation of remote
control locomotive technology in the near future. To be trained on
remote control technology, employees must meet the requirements under
49 C.F.R. Part 240 for certification as a Student Remote Control
Operator. For that purpose trainmen who presently work the Houston
area yards or are likely to work in the yards around the Houston area
will soon receive Certification Packets from the licensing department.
These packets include: A&B) Motor Vehicle Authorization Forms for
obtaining both State and National Driving Records and, C) a Medical
Package from Continuum with instructions for obtaining hearing and
vision acuity exams. It is important that you act on the instructions
contained in this packet as soon as possible. Delays in completing
these requirements may delay your being scheduled for RCO Training
and, in turn, could adversely effect your eligibility to work as a
trainman.

Currently licensed hostlers and locomotive engineers already meet
qualification for a Student RCO License and will not receive a
Certification Packet. If identified as candidates for RCO Training,
these employees will be receiving a RCO Student License instead of the
Certification Packet.

These packets were mailed U.S. Mail on May 20th, 2003 to employees
mailing address of record and should be received within 5 days. If
you believe you should have and did not receive a Certification
Packet, or Student RCO License, on or before May 27th, 2003 contact
your local manager or call the Licensing Department at (8) 280-6537.

PURPOSE:
Electronic Hours of Service Reporting


EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

The FRA Screens completed at the end of electronic Tie Up are for
Federal Hours of Service Recordkeeping purposes only. Entries in these
screens have no effect on pay.

The completion of these screens creates an official Hours of Service
record, as required by Federal Regulation, that may be reviewed
electronically by FRA Inspectors. It is essential that these records
are completed accurately, responsibly and professionally.

To avoid the most common errors employees must:

a) Report Deadheads Accurately.
Deadheads, both to service and returning from service, must be
reported as part of Activity Reporting, Lines E through L, not as
service on Lines A through D of the input screen.

b) Report accurate RLVD / RLSD times.
RLVD (Relieved Time) is the time covered service stops. This does not
include time waiting for transportation or time spent in Tow-in to the
point of Final Release. This is considered LIMBO TIME, neither On
Duty or Off Duty.

RLSD (Released Time) is the time of Final Release when actually tieing
up either on computer or by calling CMS. Required rest period begins
at the Released Time.

c) When called to report for duty "on your rest" ensure that PTO
(Prior Time Off) and Start D/T (Starting Time) are correct. Change the
PTO if necessary to reflect actual rest and enter actual "rested"
on-duty time instead of CMS generated start time.

d) Check for accuracy before certifying entries as correct.
After making required entries check the TTOD (Total Time on Duty)
Field on the Certification Page before entering a "Y" to Certify as
Correct. If TTOD indicates greater than 12 Hours, and this is not
correct, enter an "N". The system will return to the entry screens for
any necessary corrections.

e) If an error is made, and unintentionally certified as correct,
explain fully in the comments field.

f) If an actual violation has occurred explain the circumstances fully
in the comments field, including the name of the responsible party if
the violation was at their instruction.

g) Hours of Service Reporting must be kept current. If unable to
complete an Hours of Service Tie-Up for any reason, such as exceeding
Hours of Service or computer outage, the reporting should be completed
during the next tour of duty using =MC Option 2, Delayed Report.

More detailed guidance on these and other Hours of Service reporting
issues is provided in the UPRR Electronic Hours of Service Reporting
Guide for Transportation Employees (PB-22265), effective 10/1/02.
Employees that have not received this guide should request one from
their manager.

Family & Medical Leave Act


EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

Advance Notice & Medical Certification:
The employee may be required to provide advance leave notice and
medical certification. Taking of leave may be delayed if requirements
are not met.
- The employee ordinarily must provide 30 days advance notice when the
leave is "foreseeable."
- An employer may require medical certification to support a request
for leave because of a serious health condition, and may require
second or third opinions (at the employer's expense) and a fitness for
duty report to return to work.

Job Benefits & Protection:
- For the duration of FMLA leave, the employer must maintain the
employee's health coverage under any "group health plan."
- Upon return from FMLA leave, most employees must be restored to
their original or equivalent positions with equivalent pay, benefits,
and other employment terms.
- The use of FMLA leave cannot result in the loss of any employment
benefit that accrued prior to the start of an employee's leave.

Unlawful Acts by Employers:
FMLA makes it unlawful for any employer to:
- interfere with, restrain, or deny the exercise of any right provided
under FMLA;
- discharge or discriminate against any person for opposing any
practice made unlawful by FMLA or for involvement in any proceeding
under or relating to FMLA.

Enforcement:
- The U.S. Department of Labor is authorized to investigate and
resolve complaints of violations.
- An eligible employee may bring a civil action against an employer
for violations.
FMLA does not affect any Federal or State law prohibiting
discrimination, or supersede any State or local law or collective
bargaining agreement which provides greater family or medical leave
rights.

For Additional Information:
Nonagreement employees should contact Compensation and Benefits
Department at (402) 997-4000.

Agreement employees should contact Labor Relations Department at
(402) 271-4179.

Any employee may contact the Wage and Hour Division, listed in most
telephone directories under U. S. Government, Department of Labor.

CANCELLATIONS:

THE CAB SIGNAL SYSTEM IS OFTEN TIMES CUT IN AND TESTED AT LOCATIONS
 WELL IN ADVANCE OF ACS TERRITORY. IT IS THEN PLACED IN PARTIAL
 CUTOUT POSITION TO EXTINGUISH THE LIGHT DISPLAY. HOWEVER, THE
 DEVICE IS STILL OPERATIVE, AND WILL RESPOND IF IT RECEIVES A
 SIGNAL. IN NON-ACS TERRITORY, THIS INADVERTANT SIGNAL IS REFERRED TO
 AS A "HIT," AND WILL CAUSE A PENALTY BRAKE APPLICATION IF NOT REACTED

TO PROMPTLY. CREWS MUST REPORT LOCATIONS CAUSING CAB SIGNAL HITS TO
THE TRAIN DISPATCHER, SO THEY CAN BE CORRECTED.

IN NON-ACS TERRITORY, WHEN A TRAIN EXPERIENCES A CAB SIGNAL HIT,
DO THE FOLLOWING TO PREVENT AN UNINTENTIONAL PENALTY BRAKE
APPLICATION:

1. IF THE ACKNOWLEDGING LEVER IS IN THE "PARTIAL CUTOUT"
  POSITION (C/O), MOVE THE ACKNOWLEDGING LEVER TO THE "NORMAL"
  POSITION (NOR) AND LEAVE IT THERE FOR 1 SECOND.

  * ON NORTH AMERICAN CAB LOCOMOTIVES EQUIPPED WITH THE
  ACKNOWLEDGING PLUNGER, IF THE ACKNOWLEDGING PLUNGER IS IN THE
  "PARTIAL CUTOUT" POSITION (RAISED), PUSH THE PLUNGER BUTTON
  ONCE TO CUT IN THE CAB SIGNALS.

2. MOVE THE ACKNOWLEDGING LEVER FROM THE "NORMAL" POSITION TO THE
  "ACKNOWLEDGE" POSITION (ACK), HOLD IT THERE FOR 1 SECOND, AND
  RELEASE IT BACK TO THE "NORMAL" POSITION.
  * ON NORTH AMERICAN CAB LOCOMOTIVES EQUIPPED WITH THE
  ACKNOWLEDGING PLUNGER, PUSH THE PLUNGER A SECOND TIME TO
  ACKNOWLEDGE THE CAB SIGNAL.

3. IF IN NON-CAB SIGNAL TERRITORY, MOVE THE ACKNOWLEDGING LEVER TO
  THE "PARTIAL CUTOUT" POSITION TO TURN OFF THE CAB SIGNAL LIGHT.
  * ON NORTH AMERICAN CAB LOCOMOTIVES EQUIPPED WITH THE
  ACKNOWLEDGING PLUNGER, LIFT THE PLUNGER TO PLACE THE SYSTEM IN
  "PARTIAL CUTOUT".

4. IF A PENALTY BRAKE APPLICATION OCCURS BEFORE THE CAB SIGNAL IS
  RESET, RECOVER FROM THE PENALTY BRAKE APPLICATION AS DESCRIBED IN
  RULE 31.10.3 (TRAIN STOPPED AFTER PENALTY APPLICATION).

PURPOSE:
TRAINLINK.ATX (AIR TURBINE) EOT DEVICE DESCRIPTION



EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

TRAINLINK.ATX (AIR TURBINE) EOT DEVICE DESCRIPTION
 UNION PACIFIC WILL BEGIN UTILIZING END OF TRAIN TELEMETRY DEVICES
 THAT DO NOT REQUIRE THE USE OF THE SMARTPACK BATTERY. THESE DEVICES
 ARE IDENTIFIED BY THE LETTERS ATX AND ARE IN THE SERIES UPRQ29370 -
 UPRQ29589. THESE DEVICES OPERATE IDENTICALLY TO ALL UP END OF
 TRAIN DEVICES EXCEPT THEY ARE POWERED BY AN AIR GENERATOR AS OPPOSED
 TO THE SMARTPACK BATTERY.

STARTUP AND ARMING
THE TRAINLINK.ATX DOES NOT REQUIRE THE USE OF A SMARTPACK
BATTERY. IT IS EQUIPPED WITH AN AIR TURBINE GENERATOR THAT OPERATES
OVER A PRESSURE RANGE OF ABOUT 50 TO 125 PSI. IT WILL OPERATE IN THE
SAME ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AS A STANDARD EOT.

AIR MUST BE APPLIED TO THE EOT FOR STARTUP. WHEN AIR IS PRESENT ON
THE EOT, THE ALTERNATOR SUPPLIES ELECTRICAL POWER AND CHARGES THE
BACK-UP BATTERY. ARMING AND PRE-DEPARTURE PROCEDURES WILL BE
IDENTICAL TO PRESENT BATTERY POWERED EOT OPERATIONS. HOWEVER, THE
READ OUT INFORMATION IS DIFFERENT THAN THE EXISTING EQUIPMENT. THE
TRAINLINK.ATX WILL SCROLL THROUGH THE FOLLOWING DISPLAYS ON EACH
BUTTON PRESS.
 "WRE"     WABTEC RAILWAY ELECTRONICS
 "AIR POWERED"
 "VXX"    WHERE XX IS THE EOT SOFTWARE VERSION
 "GXX"    WHERE XX IS THE AIR GENERATOR VOLTAGE
        (TRANSMITTED IN THE CHARGE UNIT FIELD)
 "VXXX"    WHERE XXX IS THE BATTERY VOLTAGE X10
        (V123 = 12.3VDC)
 "PXX"    WHERE XX IS THE BRAKE PIPE PRESSURE

BATTERY BACKUP
WHEN AIR IS REMOVED FROM THE TRAINLINK.ATX, A BACK UP BATTERY
POWERS THE EOT FOR FOUR (4) HOURS. IF AFTER 3 HRS. AND 55 MIN. AIR
HAS NOT BEEN RE-APPLIED TO THE EOT, THE EOT WILL TRANSMIT A "NO AIR"
MESSAGE FOR FIVE (5) MINUTES, THEN THE EOT WILL SHUT DOWN. WHEN AIR
IS RE-APPLIED, THE EOT WILL WAKE UP AUTOMATICALLY AND BEGIN TO
"TRICKLE-CHARGE" THE BACK UP BATTERY. HOWEVER, WHEN THE AIR PRESSURE
ON THE EOT IS LESS THAN 50 PSI, THE AIR GENERATOR WILL SUPPLY
SUFFICIENT POWER TO OPERATE THE EOT, BUT WILL NOT CHARGE THE BACK
UP BATTERY.

THE TRAINLINK.ATX WILL FUNCTION NORMALLY EVEN IF THE BACK-UP BATTERY
IS DEAD. IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY BRAKE APPLICATION, WHICH
WOULD REMOVE THE AIR SOURCE, THE ENERGY STORED IN THE AIR TURBINE'S
FLYWHEEL WILL BE SUFFICIENT TO COMPLETE THE EMERGENCY COMMAND AT THE
EOT.

WHILE OPERATING ON THE BATTERY THE TRAINLINK.ATX WILL TRANSMIT
THE MESSAGE "REPLBAT" (REPLACE BATTERY) TO THE LCU WHEN THE VOLTAGE
DROPS BELOW 10.5V. IF AIR IS APPLIED, THE VOLTAGE WILL CLIMB ABOVE
11.0V AND THE EOT WILL SEND A "CLEAR" MESSAGE. ADDITIONALLY, NO
"DEADBAT" (DEAD BATTERY) ALARM WILL BE SENT. HOWEVER, IF THE VOLTAGE
CONTINUES TO DROP TO BELOW 9 VOLTS THE SYSTEM WILL SHUT DOWN AFTER A
DELAY OF 4 MINUTES. THIS PREVENTS DEEP-DISCHARGE OF THE BATTERY.

TILT SHUTDOWN
AS IN STANDARD EOTS, THE TRAINLINK.ATX SHUTS DOWN ON THE
TILT-TO-HORIZONTAL. HOWEVER, IT MUST REMAIN TILTED FOR A PERIOD
OF APPROXIMATELY 5 MINUTES TO COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN THE BATTERY MICRO
CONTROLLER. WHEN THE UNIT IS RESTORED TO THE UPRIGHT POSITION,
AND AIR IS APPLIED, THE EOT WILL AUTOMATICALLY WAKE UP.

LCU DATA DISPLAYS
MESSAGES DISPLAYED ON THE LCU WILL BE THE SAME EXCEPT THAT THE
FOLLOWING DISPLAYS WILL HAVE A SPECIFIC MEANING WHEN OPERATED
WITH THE TRAINLINK.ATX.
 "CU" (CHARGE UNITS)DISPLAYS THE GENERATOR VOLTAGE IN 1 VOLT
            INCREMENTS
 "NO AIR"      INDICATES THAT AIR HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE
            TRAINLINK.ATX FOR 3 HOURS AND 55 MINUTES.
            EOT WILL SHUT DOWN AT 4 HOURS.
 "REPLBAT"      INDICATES THAT THE BATTERY VOLTAGE HAS
            DROPPED BELOW 10.5 VOLTS. AIR SHOULD BE RE-
            APPLIED TO THE UNIT TO TRICKLE-CHARGE THE
            BATTERY.

THEORY OF OPERATION
AIR FILTER/NOZZLE ASSEMBLY
AIR FROM THE BRAKE PIPE SERVES AS THE SUPPLY FOR THE TRAINLINK.ATX
AIR TURBINE. AIR PASSES THROUGH A FILTER ASSEMBLY AND THEN THROUGH A
SMALL NOZZLE THAT DIRECTS THE HIGH VELOCITY AIR ONTO THE TURBINE
BLADES. AIRFLOW THROUGH THE AIR FILTER/NOZZLE ASSEMBLY CAN BE
VERIFIED BY APPLYING PRESSURE TO THE EOT AND OBSERVING THE GENERATOR
OUTPUT ON THE EOT'S DISPLAY. AT 80 PSI INPUT, THE GENERATOR OUTPUT
SHOULD BE NO LESS THAN 25 VDC (G25 OR HIGHER WILL BE SEEN IN THE EOT
DISPLAY). THIS INFORMATION IS ALSO TRANSMITTED TO THE LCU AND
DISPLAYED IN THE CHARGE UNITS FIELD.


TURBINE/ALTERNATOR
THE AIR TURBINE CONSUMES LESS THAN 1.3 SCFM AT 80 PSI. AT THIS
PRESSURE THE TURBINE SPINS AT 3500 RPM AND PRODUCES AN OUTPUT OF
APPROXIMATELY 25 VDC. SHOWN BELOW IS THE GENERATOR OUTPUT AT
VARIOUS PRESSURE INPUTS:
PRESSURE INPUT (PSI)    GENERATOR OUTPUT VDC (MIN.)
    50               17
    80               25
   100               32 (MAX.)

RETURN TO WORK PROGRAM COORDINATOR


EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

All Transportation Employees:

I am pleased to announce that beginning April 26, 2004, all train,
yard and engine service employees will have access to a return to work
program designed to help you keep working while recuperating from an
illness or injury. This Return to Work Program is a pilot project,
managed by the Health Services Department, located at seven UPRR
Service Units to help employees receive wages and continued benefits
while recovering from illness, off-duty or on-duty injury. The
Houston Service Unit is one of the pilot areas in which we will have a
dedicated Return to Work Coordinator available to assist you with the
ability to stay at work with pay during recovery as you successfully
transition back to your regular job after injury or illness.

If you have an injury or illness with an onset date of January 1, 2004
and have a medical release from your doctor indicating you can return
to work within a 60-day period or less as you approach recovery, then
you may be eligible for Temporary Productive Work (TPW). TPW is work
assignments that are developed by your manager on the Service Unit to
enable you to earn a basic day of pay and retain your seniority and
benefits. The Return to Work coordination is handled by a
Masters-level rehabilitation professional contracted by UPRR Health
Services Department who will be located in the Houston Service Unit.
The Return to Work Coordinator for our Service Unit is Molly Meloy and
he can be contacted at (281) 350-7121. I encourage you to contact
her directly with any questions on how the Return to Work Program
works and to find out if you may qualify to participate in this
voluntary program.

Molly will work closely with your manager to identify Temporary
Productive Work assignments as you transition back into you regular
job as outlined by the restrictions from your doctor. Molly will work
closely with you and your doctor to ensure that your job duties
compliment the healing process.

Anyone can refer injured or ill UPRR employees to this new program to
determine if they are eligible for services. You can call for
yourself, you can have your union representative refer you, or you can
speak with your manager about the program. If you should need this
type of assistance now or in the future, I hope you will contact the
RTW Coordinator or your supervisor, and take advantage of an
opportunity that will allow you to return to work in a successful and
safe manner while maintaining your pay and benefits.

Again, if you have any questions, feel free to call Molly at (281)
350-7121 or my office for more information.

IT IS EXPECTED THAT UNION PACIFIC EMPLOYEES WILL PROTECT THEIR JOB
ASSIGNMENTS ON A FULL-TIME BASIS.

IN CASES WHERE AN EMPLOYEE DOES NOT WORK FULL TIME, THE FOLLOWING
POLICY IS APPLICABLE:

1. EMPLOYEES WHO DO NOT WORK FULL TIME WILL BE IDENTIFIED. THE
  IDENTIFIED EMPLOYEES WORK RECORD WILL BE EXAMINED TO ENSURE THE
  INFORMATION IS ACCURATE. DURING THIS PROCESS, EVERY EFFORT WILL
  BE MADE TO IDENTIFY THOSE EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE LEGITIMATE REASONS
  FOR THEIR ABSENCES. IF NECESSARY, THE SUPERVISOR WILL CONTACT
  THE EMPLOYEE TO OBTAIN ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND/OR CLARIFY THE
  AVAILABLE INFOR- MATION. IF THE EMPLOYEES ATTENDANCE RECORD
  WARRANTS, AN INVESTIGATION WILL BE HELD. IF APPROPRIATE,
  DISCIPLINE WILL BE ISSUED BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE
  INVESTIGATION.

2. IDENTIFICATION WILL INCLUDE EMPLOYEES WITH:
     A. FREQUENT OR PATTERN OF WEEKEND LAYOFFS.
     B. FREQUENT OR PATTERN OF HOLIDAY LAYOFFS.
     C. FREQUENT PERSONAL LAYOFFS.
     D. FREQUENT SICK/SICKNESS IN FAMILY LAYOFFS WITHOUT MEDICAL
       DOCUMENTATION.
     E. LOWER AVAILABILITY DAYS WHEN COMPARED TO PEERS.

3. THE EMPLOYEES WORK RECORD WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED. IF THE
  EMPLOYEE STILL FAILS TO WORK FULL TIME, A SECOND AND, IF
  NEEDED, THIRD INVESTIGATION WILL BE HELD. IF APPROPRIATE,
  DISCIPLINE WILL BE ISSUED BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE
  INVESTIGATIONS.

4. DISCIPLINE ASSESSED FOR VIOLATIONS OF THIS POLICY WILL BE
  INDEPENDENT OF DISCIPLINE LEVELS COMPUTED UNDER UPGRADE.

5. EMPLOYEES WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO MARK UP FOR SERVICE IMMEDIATELY
  AND TO WORK FULL TIME FOLLOWING THE FIRST AND SECOND
  INVESTIGATIONS.

6. A THIRD ABSENTEEISM OFFENSE WILL RESULT IN DISMISSAL.


                 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS


1. WHAT IS MEANT BY FULL TIME?

DUE TO THE VARIETY OF ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RAILROAD FULL TIME
VARIES. FOR EXAMPLE,THOSE WITH ASSIGNED REST DAYS ARE EXPECTED TO
WORK ON ASSIGNED WORK DAYS. THOSE IN POOLS ARE EXPECTED TO WORK THE
MILEAGE AND /OR NUMBER OF TRIPS THAT THE POOL CALLS FOR. EXTRA
BOARDS HAVE A NUMBER OF MILES OR DAYS AS A GUARANTEE BASE THAT SHOULD
BE A STANDARD. EMPLOYEES HAVE A NUMBER OF PAID DAYS TO USE FOR
ABSENCES AND THE CARRIER WILL HONOR THOSE COMMITMENTS.

2. WHY HAVE MANDATORY CONFERENCES BEEN ELIMINATED?

CONFERENCES WERE OFTEN POSTPONED BY THE LOCAL CHAIRMEN AND THE
EFFECTIVENESS OF THEM IS DILUTED WHEN THAT HAPPENS. THE EMPLOYEE
WOULD THEN GET A FALSE SENSE THAT HIS/HER ATTENDANCE DID NOT REALLY
MATTER. IF THE LOCAL CHAIRMAN OR EMPLOYEE HAS INFORMATION THAT THEY
BELIEVE THE MANAGER SHOULD HAVE THEY CAN TAKE THE NECESSARY STEPS TO
PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION PRIOR TO ANY HEARING.

3. WHAT ABOUT FMLA LAYOFFS?

UPRR HAS PREPARED A NEW SET OF INSTRUCTIONS FOR MANAGERS TO FOLLOW.
THEY WILL WORK WITH EMPLOYEES WHO CLAIM THEY COME UNDER FMLA
REGULATIONS TO ENSURE THAT ALL PROCEDURES ARE PROPERLY AND TIMELY
FOLLOWED. THOSE WHO DO COME UNDER THOSE REGULATIONS WILL QUICKLY
KNOW WHAT APPLIES TO THEM AND THOSE WHO DO NOT WILL ALSO BE SO
ADVISED IN A TIMELY MANNER.

4. DO ALL EMPLOYEES START OVER?

NO, THOSE WHO HAVE HAD A HEARING WITHIN THE SIX MONTHS PRIOR TO
JANUARY 15, 2004 WILL HAVE THOSE HEARINGS COUNT. IF IT WAS THEIR
FIRST HEARING THEN IT WILL COUNT AS SUCH AND IF THE SECOND HEARING IT
WILL COUNT AS THE SECOND HEARING.

5. WHY ARE THE PROBATIONARY PERIODS ELIMINATED?

ATTENDANCE SHOULD BE A CONSTANT. ALLOWING EMPLOYEES TO START OVER
AFTER SIX MONTHS DOES NOT CHANGE POOR ATTENDANCE BEHAVIOR INTO
POSITIVE BEHAVIOR.

6. WONT THE LARGE NUMBER OF HEARINGS TAKE TIME AWAY FROM MANAGING
OPERATIONS?

THE CARRIER DOES NOT EXPECT A LARGE NUMBER OF HEARINGS. A VAST
MAJORITY OF OUR EMPLOYEES HAVE GOOD ATTENDANCE. UNFORTUNATELY IT
ONLY TAKES A FEW EMPLOYEES AT EACH LOCATION TO UPSET THE NORMAL
WORKINGS OF THE POOLS AND EXTRA BOARDS TO RESULT IN HELD TRAINS AND
BEING USED OFF ASSIGNMENT. THIS POLICY WILL GIVE THOSE EMPLOYEES
EXAMPLE OPPORTUNITY TO DECIDE TO WORK FULL TIME FOR THE RAILROAD.

7. WHY IS IT OUTSIDE OF UPGRADE?

IT IS STILL A PROGRESSIVE POLICY LIKE UPGRADE, HOWEVER THE NATURE OF
ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS IS NOT SIMILAR TO OTHER RULE VIOLATIONS.
EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE ATTENDANCE PROBLEMS MAKE A CONSCIOUS DECISION TO
NOT GO TO WORK.

8. WHEN A MANAGER FILTERS A LIST WHAT ARE MITIGATING CIRCUMSTANCES
THAT TAKE AN EMPLOYEE OFF THE LIST?

THERE ARE SEVERAL THAT WE HAVE UNCOVERED IN THE INITIAL START UP.
WHILE THESE ARE NOT INCLUSIVE THEY SHOULD GIVE GUIDANCE.

(A) ALL EMPLOYEES ELIGIBLE FOR FMLA HAVE NOT UNDERSTOOD IT OR
UTILIZED IT SO INSTEAD THEY LAY OFF PERSONAL OR SICK. ONE EMPLOYEE
HAD A WIFE THAT HAD CANCER AND NEEDED ASSISTANCE WITH TREATMENTS.
THE LOCAL MANAGER HAD A CONFERENCE AND THE EMPLOYEE WAS DIRECTED TO
FMLA AND ALSO UNDERSTOOD THAT HE NEEDED TO ADVISE IN ADVANCE WHEN
POSSIBLE THE NEED TO BE OFF.

(B) ONE EMPLOYEE SHOWED VERY HIGH WORK LEVELS AND A HIGH NUMBER OF
LAYOFFS. A REVIEW OF WORK RECORDS INDICATED THAT DUE TO A HIGH
NUMBER OF RECREWS IN THE TEST MONTHS, THE EMPLOYEE WAS WORKING ON HIS
REST OFF THE EXTRA BOARD AND LAID OFF FOR SHORT PERIODS OF TIME BUT
WORKED SOON AFTER MARKING UP. DUE TO THE HIGH NUMBER OF WORK EVENTS,
IT WAS DECIDED TO JUST MONITOR THE EMPLOYEE TO SEE IF WHEN THE
RECREWS WENT DOWN, THE NUMBER OF LAYOFFS ALSO WENT DOWN.

(C) AN EMPLOYEE HAD BEEN IN AN OFF DUTY ACCIDENT AND HAD JUST LAID
OFF. THE MANAGER CONTACTED THE EMPLOYEE AND HAD THEM FILL OUT A
MEDICAL LEAVE OF ABSENCE TO COVER THEIR ABSENCE.

(9) WHY ARE NEW HIRES NOT ON THE LIST?
SINCE THE LIST COVERS A FOUR MONTH PERIOD AND NEW HIRES GO THROUGH A
FOUR MONTH TRAINING PROGRAM, ENOUGH DATA IS NOT DEVELOPED TO EVALUATE
THEM USING THE FOUR MONTH CRITERIA. AS SUCH EACH SERVICE UNIT SHOULD
MONITOR THEIR NEW HIRES ON A BI WEEKLY BASIS TO SEE IF ACTION SHOULD
BE TAKEN INCLUDING TURNING THEIR APPLICATION.

(10) WHY IS PERCENTAGE AVAILABILITY NOT USED?

AVAILABILITY PERCENTAGES ARE EASILY MANIPULATED. FOR EXAMPLE, AN
EMPLOYEE CAN LAYOFF FOR ONE HOUR, MISS THEIR TURN AND THEN MARK UP
WHILE THEY GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE BOARD. THE COMPUTER SHOWS THEM
AVAILABLE, HOWEVER AN EXTRA EMPLOYEE HAS BEEN CALLED, THEY ARE NOW AT
THE BOTTOM OF THE BOARD AND SUBJECT TO RUNAROUND RULES AND USED OFF
ASSIGNMENT PENALTIES. THERE WAS ONE EMPLOYEE WHO DID NOT WORK FOR 91
DAYS USING THE LAYOFF MARK UP TACTIC AND STILL SHOWED A 35%
AVAILABILITY. IN ADDITION, DUE TO THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WORK
SCHEDULES RAILROADERS FACE, ARBITRATION AWARDS HAVE TREATED
PURE PERCENTAGES AS IMPROPER.

(11) THE UNION KEEPS OBJECTING, CITING THE TIME LIMIT RULE. HOW
SHOULD I RESPOND?

TIME LIMIT RULES GENERALLY REQUIRE A HEARING TO BE HELD WITHIN A
GIVEN NUMBER OF DAYS AFTER THE CARRIER HAS KNOWLEDGE OF AN INCIDENT.
ABSENTEEISM IS A SERIES OF EVENTS, NOT A SINGULAR EVENT. AS SUCH
ARBITRATION AWARDS HAVE HELD THAT REVIEWING AN EMPLOYEES WORK AND
LAYOFF HISTORY OVER A PERIOD OF TIME IS A NOT VIOLATION OF THE TIME
LIMIT RULE. AS SUCH IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ALL HEARINGS REVIEW A TIME
PERIOD OF SUFFICIENT LENGTH TO SHOW THAT A PATTERN OF ABSENTEEISM HAS
OCCURRED OVER TIME. IT IS APPROPRIATE TO INCLUDE A WORK HISTORY UP
TO THE DATE OF THE NOTICE THAT WAS MAILED ADVISING OF THE HEARING.
THIS WILL ENSURE THAT THE TIME FRAME INCLUDES A PERIOD OF TIME WITHIN
THE TIME LIMITS OF THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT.

(12) IS THERE A MINIMUM TIME PERIOD THAT SHOULD BE LOOKED AT IN A
HEARING?

THIS DEPENDS ON THE STATUS OF THE EMPLOYEE. FOR EXAMPLE, IF AN
EMPLOYEE HAS JUST HAD A HEARING, FOUND IN VIOLATION OF THE POLICY
AND ADVISED TO IMPROVE THEIR WORK RECORD THE MANAGER WILL WANT TO
MONITOR THE EMPLOYEE OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. IF THE SAME PATTERN
CONTINUES THEN THE MANAGER COULD HOLD ANOTHER HEARING SHOWING THE
LAYOFF RECORD FOR THE 30 DAYS AFTER THE LAST HEARING. IF HOWEVER,
THIS IS THE FIRST HEARING THEN THE LAYOFF RECORD OVER A LONGER
PERIOD SHOULD BE USED. IF THE CMS LIST SHOWS POOR WEEKEND AND
HOLIDAY LAYOFFS THEN 8 WEEKENDS COULD BE USED BUT ALL ELEVEN HOLIDAYS
WOULD BE USED.

(13) I RECEIVED THE CMS LIST AND FILTERED IT AND STARTED WITH THE
WORST RECORDS FIRST. NOW SOME TIME HAS GONE BY AND I AM SCHEDULING
NEW HEARINGS BUT THE INFORMATION HAS NOW AGED. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

IT IS ALWAYS APPROPRIATE TO LOOK AT THE LATEST 91 DAY WORK HISTORY
SCREEN OF ALL EMPLOYEES. THIS LOOK MAY ADD ADDITIONAL LAYOFF
HISTORY FOR USE IN A HEARING OR IT MAY SHOW THAT THE EMPLOYEE HAS
CHANGED THEIR PAST PATTERN AND NOW WORK FULL TIME. IF THE LAYOFF
PATTERN HAS CONTINUED THEN THE MOST CURRENT RECORD SHOULD BE PART OF
THE HEARING. IF THE WORK LEVEL HAS IMPROVED THE MANAGER MAY WANT TO
JUST MONITOR THE EMPLOYEE OR TALK TO THE EMPLOYEE AND ADVISE THAT
THEY HAVE NOTICED AN IMPROVEMENT AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO MAINTAIN THAT
LEVEL. THAT LETS THE EMPLOYEE KNOW THAT THEIR WORK LEVEL HAS BEEN
NOTICED.

(14) SHOULD I ENTER THE CMS LIST INTO THE HEARING?

NO, THIS IS TO BE USED AS A GUIDE AS TO WHO SHOULD BE REVIEWED AND
DOES NOT GIVE ENOUGH DETAIL TO BE USED IN A HEARING.

(15) WHAT CAN I ENTER INTO THE HEARING?

THE WORK AND LAYOFF HISTORY OF THE EMPLOYEE. THE MOST DETAILED ONE
IS THE PSW SCREEN WHICH GIVES A DETAILED 91 DAY HISTORY OF TIMES
MARKED OFF, ASSIGNMENTS WORKED AND REASONS FOR MARK OFF. ALSO QUITE
DETAILED IS THE CREW INQUIRER REPORT VERSION 5 WHICH COVERS LONGER
TIME PERIODS THAN THE PSW SCREEN. CMS CALENDARS GIVE AN OVERVIEW,
HOWEVER THEY DO NOT SHOW ENOUGH DETAIL ABOUT THE LAYOFF OR MARK UP
AND THUS CAN SHOW AN EMPLOYEE DOING BOTH ON THE SAME DAY WITHOUT ANY
DETAIL AS TO WHEN THEY OCCURRED.

(16) I KNOW JULY 15, 2003 STARTS THE THREE YEAR PERIOD FOR THOSE WHO
HAVE HAD PREVIOUS DISCIPLINE ON ATTENDANCE, BUT SINCE THERE IS NO
DISTINCT EVENT DATE, WHAT DATE IS USED TO CALCULATE THE THREE YEAR
PERIOD FOR THOSE HAVING THEIR FIRST HEARING, THE DATE OF THE NOTICE
OF INVESTIGATION, THE DATE OF THE HEARING OR THE DATE OF THE LETTER
OF RESULTS SENT AFTER THE HEARING?

SINCE ATTENDANCE IS NOT DETERMINED BY A SPECIFIC EVENT THAT CAN BE
DATED, (LIKE RUNNING THROUGH A SWITCH) THE DATE OF THE LETTER OF
RESULTS IS THE DATE THAT SHOULD BE USED.

(17) IF AN EMPLOYEE OVERUSES FMLA CAN THAT BE BROUGHT INTO A
HEARING?

YES IN SOME INSTANCES. FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE APPROVAL LETTER ADVISES
THAT AN EMPLOYEE IS AUTHORIZED 4 DAYS PER MONTH FOR VISITS TO A
DOCTOR AND SHOULD GIVE 30 ADVANCE NOTICE OF APPOINTMENTS AND THE
EMPLOYEE LAYS OFF FMLA 8 DAYS WITH NO ADVANCE NOTICE THEN THE
APPROVAL LETTER CAN BE INTRODUCED WITH INFORMATION ABOUT NO ADVANCE
NOTICE. IT WOULD THEN BE UP TO THE EMPLOYEE TO EXPLAIN DISCREPANCIES.
ANOTHER EXAMPLE WOULD BE IF THE EMPLOYEE WAS SENT PAPERWORK AND
NEVER FILLED OUT THE PAPER WORK BUT CONTINUED TO TAKE FMLA LEAVE.
HIS FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH INSTRUCTIONS TO COMPLETE HIS PAPERWORK
IS SUBJECT TO QUESTIONING.


(18) IF AN EMPLOYEE LAYS OF LK OR LS AND AT THE HEARING BRINGS A
LETTER OF APPROVED FMLA SHOULD THE HEARING BE CANCELLED?

IN MOST CASES NO. THE EMPLOYEE DID NOT LAYOFF FMLA SO THERE MAY BE
DISCREPANCIES AS TO WHAT WAS ALLOWED FOR FMLA OR WHEN IT BEGAN.
EVERYTHING SHOULD BE ENTERED INTO THE RECORD TO FIND OUT THE WHAT,
WHENS AND WHYS AND THEN A DECISION CAN BE MADE AS TO WHETHER A
VIOLATION OF THE ATTENDANCE POLICY OCCURRED.

PURPOSE:
EDTT ELECTRONIC RULES TRAINING & TESTING
PROCESS-TRIENNIAL RULES-STUDY GUIDE



EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

Employees who are due exams in 2006 are responsible to arrange to take
the examination. The manager will help to ensure understanding of the
training and examination process. Employees must complete the
examination within 90 days prior to their birthday.

Employees will arrange to take their triennial or recertification exam
on their own time in a manner that does not interfere with or
commingle with the performance of service covered under the hours of
service law. To avoid commingling of hours of service, employees must
have a proper statutory off-duty period both before and after the time
engaged in completing the examination. Only the actual rules exam is
subject to commingling with covered service. Time spent in studying or
reviewing training materials is done entirely at the employee's own
discretion and does not commingle with covered service.

Employees due recertification are not eligible to take the ERTT exam
except when proctored. Those who need to recertify for engineer
certification or remote control operator (federal regulations require
a monitored exam) and, employees scoring below 850 in the EQMS program
(employee quality management system) may require classroom training
based on additional criteria. Example: Familiarization territory test.
Engineers and remote control operators due recertification in 2005
must complete the exam at least 30 days prior to their birthday to
ensure compliance with licensing and no interruption in service.

Classroom rules training will be required for TE&Y employees that
hired out in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003. This training begins
March 1 and will be a one day classroom instruction, review and an
exam at the conclusion of the class. This class will also satisfy
the recertification requirements if within the specific time limits.

The employee will be automatically compensated a basic day after
completion of the exam with a grade of 85% or better. Failure to
attain a score of 85% or higher will require the employee to be
withheld from service until taking a monitored re-exam.

ERTT is located on the UPRR employee website by selecting "Training
& Testing" under Crew Boards. You can also select "Departments"
then "Operating" then "TE&Y Training Index" then "Rules Training".

Use your employee user ID and your regular TCS password to enter the
training site. Employees have unlimited access to training subjects
and practice exams and are encouraged to visit the site frequently.
However, the test is only open to employees who are due rules exams
this year. The test may also be used with an employee's developmental
plan when appropriate.

Train, engine & yard employees can use the rules training and study
materials to prepare for the triennial (or recertification) rules
exam. Additional study materials will be added periodically, and
employees are encouraged to visit the site frequently throughout the
year.

Under Rules Training "Frequently Asked Questions about ERTT Rules
and Procedures" ERTT TE&Y "Quick Reference Guide" fully explains ERTT
and how to navigate through the system.

In preparation for successfully completing the examination, employees
are strongly advised to complete the training material in these
sections.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The 2005 rules training and exam is very challenging and is designed
to test and increase your knowledge of safety, operating and train
handling rules and procedures. It is strongly recommended that
employees study the rules prior to examination to assist in ensuring a
successful completion. It is your responsibility to determine if a
general order or special instruction has changed any rule. In addition
to the rules identified below, there will be questions requiring the
use of System Special Instructions and Hazardous Material Instructions
Form-8620.

Rules and instructions listed below in the study guide may be found in
the following documents:
   - UPRR rule book;

UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY
HOUSTON Superintendent Bulletin No. - 20

PURPOSE:
New York Air Brake Company has identified a software fault in Knorr
CCB Generation II brake systems. These electronic air brake
systems are found on both GE and EMD locomotives (see affected Unit
numbers below). Instructions for crew members to respond to this
fault should it occur are provided below.


EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

New York Air Brake has identified a software Fault in CCB
Generation II brake systems. The defect can lead to potentially
errant functions in the locomotive air brake system.

A crew message will be continuously posted on the screen if this
fault occurs. The message will look like the following:

AIR BRAKE FAULT
BACKUP MODE ENGAGED - REDUCED IND BRAKE 001,002,003, or 006
(The independent brake cylinder pressure will be limited to 45 lbs.
in the "Back-up" mode.)

A penalty brake application will occur if the CCB brake system
experiences this fault. Should this occur, the train must be stopped
per Rule 33.9, equipment secured, then perform the following steps:

* Cycle the air brake system by turning off the air brake circuit
  breaker.
* Wait 60 seconds, then turn on the circuit breaker.
* The fault message may not clear but you may proceed after
  completing this process.
* Report this condition to the Mechanical Desk at HDC.

If the above procedure is not followed, there is a possibility that
the automatic brake valve will have the same operating characteristics
as when using the "Passenger Position." If operating in the "Back-up"
mode without cycling the air brake system, any movement of the brake
handle toward the release position could result in a complete release
of the brakes.

This only affects the lead unit of conventional trains with the
following locomotives:
SD90MAC: UP8522 - UP8561

AC4460: UP7051, UP7300 - UP7335, UP7337

AC6000: UP5695 and UP5699, UP7510 - UP7579

NEW ZTS SPOT CODE "55" DESIGNATES SUBSTITUTABLE CARS

EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

TO PROVIDE BETTER VISIBILITY OF SUBSTITUTABLE CARS FOR SPOT-ON-ARRIVAL
CUSTOMERS THE FOLLOWING CHANGE WILL BE MADE.

EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 11, 2005 A NEW ZTS SPOT CODE OF "55" WILL BE USED
TO IDENTIFY CARS DESTINED TO SPOT-ON-ARRIVAL CUSTOMERS THAT ARE
AVAILABLE FOR, OR SUBJECT TO, SUBSTITUTION.

SUBSTITUTABLE CARS WILL BE DESIGNATED WITH A "55" SPOT NUMBER INSTEAD
OF THE CURRENT "00" SPOT NUMBER. THE "55" SPOT NUMBER WILL APPEAR ON
CREW WORK ORDER DOCUMENTS, SWITCH LISTS, YARD SUMMARY PATTERNS, CAR
INQUIRY, TRAIN LISTS AND TOTAL TRACE.

CARS DESTINED FOR SPOT-ON-ARRIVAL CUSTOMERS, WHETHER LISTED ON THE
CREW WORK ORDER DOCUMENT OR AVAILABLE IN THE CUSTOMER SERVING AREA,
MAY BE SUBSTITUTED WITH OTHER CARS DESTINED TO THE SAME ZONE AND
TRACK. THE =KL T INQUIRY MAY STILL BE USED TO IDENTIFY SUBSTITUTABLE
CARS.

ONLY CARS DESTINED TO THE SAME ZONE AND TRACK ARE TO BE SUBSTITUTED.

WORK ORDER EXCEPTIONS MUST BE REPORTED FOR ANY SUBSTITUTION OF CARS.

SPOT-ON-ARRIVAL CUSTOMERS THAT ARE NOT CUTOVER TO CSL WILL STILL SHOW
"00"AS THE SPOT NUMBER.

CAPACITY SCHEDULING LOGIC PROVIDES THE ABILITY TO AUTOMATICALLY STATUS
INBOUND CUSTOMER SHIPMENTS BASED ON CUSTOMER PLANT CAPACITY AND CAR
AVAILABILITY. THESE CUSTOMERS ARE DEFINED AS SPOT-ON-ARRIVAL.

SPOT-ON-ARRIVAL CUSTOMER CARS AUTOMATICALLY SCHEDULE TO INDUSTRY FOR
PLACEMENT UNTIL PLANT CAPACITY IS REACHED. ANY AVAILABLE CARS
DESTINED TO THE CUSTOMER'S FACILITY, PROVIDED IT MEETS THE SAME
COMMODITY AND LOAD/EMPTY REQUIREMENTS, MAY BE SUBSTITUTED FOR CARS
THAT ARE SCHEDULED FOR PLACEMENT.

CUSTOMER TRACK CAPACITY IS AGREED UPON BY THE CUSTOMER AND THE LOCAL
OPERATING OFFICERS. CSL USES THIS CAPACITY INFORMATION TO DETERMINE
HOW AND WHEN TO STATUS AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT. WHEN A CUSTOMER IS
"CUTOVER" TO CSL, THE AVAILABLE CAPACITY FOR EACH TRACK IS IDENTIFIED
AND A LIST OF AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT IS PRESENTED USING THE =KL T
INQUIRY.

FOR HELP OR QUESTIONS WITH SPOT 55 CONTACT THE ATCS-GUI HELP DESK AT

MAY FIND USEFUL WHILE OFF DUTY. THE TE&Y PORTAL WILL CONTAIN MANY OF
THE UNION PACIFIC WEB SITES CURRENTLY USED BY TE&Y EMPLOYEES. MANY OF
THESE PORTLETS WILL BE ENHANCED AND OTHERS WILL BE ADDED IN THE NEAR
FUTURE.

A BRIEF LIST OF INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THE TE&Y PORTAL INCLUDES;
PAPERWORK FOR TRAIN =ID, JOB CREW DATA, LIMO / VAN STATUS, VIEW
SUPERINTENDENT BULLETINS, GENERAL ORDERS, TIMETABLES, TO/FROM
INDUSTRY, CMTS, CMS AND MANY MORE.

HOUSTON Superintendent Bulletin No. - 7

PURPOSE:
GE RCL SOFTWARE UPDATES AND CHANGES.

EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

There will be some software changes to the GE RCL system beginning on
August 2, 2004 that the Remote Control Operators will notice. The
changes that will be noticed by the operator will be surrounded by "#"
 sign. Changes that may be noticed by the operator are surrounded by
***STARS***.

  # 1. IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE MADE TO THE SPEED CONTROL LOGIC THAT
WILL MINIMIZE STARTUP DELAYS WHEN COMMANDING A SPEED FROM STOP.
ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE MADE TO IMPROVE SPEED REGULATION. #

   2. THE GE RCL SYSTEM CURRENTLY LIMITS BRAKE CYLINDER PRESSURE
WHEN A PARK STATE OR SAFE STATE FAULT IS DECLARED. THE GE RCL SYSTEM
ALSO LIMITS BC PRESURE WHEN THE OPERATOR COMMANDS FULL INDEPENDENT AND
FULL AUTOMATIC BRAKES SIMULTANEOUSLY. BC PRESSURE IS LIMITED UNDER
THESE CONDITIONS TO MINIMIZE THE POTENTIAL FOR WHEEL SLIDE DUE TO HIGH
BC PRESSURE WHILE STOPPING. ***GE IS ENHANCING THIS FEATURE TO
ELIMINATE THE LIMITING OF BC PRESSURE ONCE THE LOCOMOTIVE HAS COME TO
A STOP.***

    3. GE RECENTLY IMPLEMENTED A GRADUATED INDEPENDENT AND
AUTOMATIC BRAKE APPLICATION WHEN A PARK STATE FAULT IS DECLARED
(GRADUATED PARK STATE FAULT). ***AN ENHANCEMENT WILL BE MADE SUCH
THAT IF A GRADUATED PARK STATE FAULT IS IN PROGRESS AND THE OPERATOR
COMMANDS STOP ON THE PRIMARY OCU, THE RCL WILL IMMEDIATELY APPLY A
FULL INDEPENDENT AND A FULL AUTOMATIC BRAKE APPLICATION. (THE BRAKE
APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE GRADUATED.)***

    4. CURRENTLY IF A LOCOMOTIVE IS UNDER PULLBACK CONTROL AND
TRAVELING IN THE PULL DIRECTION THE RCL SYSTEM WILL NOT RESPOND TO
SPEED LIMIT TAGS UNTIL IT SEES THE SECOND SPEED LIMIT TAG IN THE SET
(OR THE DISTANCE COUNTER INVOKED WHEN SEEING THE FIRST SPEED LIMIT TAG
TIMES OUT). AN ENHANCEMENT IS BEING MADE TO THE SYSTEM SO THAT IT
WILL IMMEDIATELY LIMIT SPEED WHEN CROSSING THE FIRST SPEED LIMIT TAG.

    5. CURRENTLY IF A SERVICE TECHNICIAN ENTERS AN INVALID ROAD
NUMBER (EX:0000) FROM THE SCU KEPAD THE LCU ACCEPTS THIS ENTRY BUT
THEN DECLARES AN "INVALID CONFIGURATION" ERROR. A SW ENHANCEMENT IS
BEING MADE SUCH THAT THE LCU WILL NOT ACCEPT AN INVALID ROAD NUMBER
FROM THE SCU KEYPAD.

    6. CURRENTLY IF A SERVICE TECHNICIAN ENTERS AN INVALID WHEEL
DIAMETER FROM THE SCU KEYPAD THE LCU WILL NOT ACCEPT THE NEW WHEEL
DIAMETER AND WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY INDICATION THAT THE NEW WHEEL
DIAMETER WAS NOT ACCEPTED. A SW ENHANCEMENT IS BEING MADE SUCH WHEN
THE OPERATOR ENTERS AN INVALID WHEEL DIAMETER FROM THE SCU KEYPAD, THE
ORIGINAL WHEEL DIAMETER WILL BE REDISPLAYED FOR EDITING. THE
OPERATOR WILL HAVE TO RE-ENTER A VALID WHEEL DIAMETER OR PRESS THE
"MENU" KEY TO EXIT THE EDITING SCREEN.

    7. THE PRIMARY OCU HAS A FEATURE IN WHICH AN AUTOMATIC BRAKE
APPLICATION THAT IS IN AFFECT WHEN THE PRIMARY OCU IS PUT TO SLEEP
WILL BE RETAINED WHEN THE PRIMARY OCU WAKES UP. THIS IS DONE TO
ENSURE THAT AN AUTOMATIC BRAKE APPLICATON THAT MAY BE REQUIRED TO KEEP
THE TRAIN FROM ROLLING AWAY WILL NOT BE INADVERTENTLY RELEASED WHEN
COMING OUT OF SLEEP MODE AND RECOVERING THE PARK STATE FAULT. # A SW
ENHANCEMENT WAS MADE TO THE OCU APPLICAITON SW (80000451-617)IN WHICH
THE PRIMARY OCU WILL AUTOMATICALLY APPLY FULL AUTOMATIC BRAKES IF THE
PRIMARY OCU UNEXPECTEDLY LOSES POWER AND THEN HAS POWER RESTORED AND
WAKES UP. # AGAIN, THIS IS DONE TO ENSURE THAT THE TRAIN DOES NOT ROLL

AWAY AS A RESULT OF WAKING UP AND AUTOMATICALLY RELEASING THE
AUTOMATIC BRAKES WHEN THE PARK STATE FAULT IS RECOVERED. # THE
OPERATOR WILL BE PROMPTED TO RELEASE THE AUTOMATIC BRAKES IN ORDER TO
COMPLETE THE RECOVERY OF THE PARK STATE FAULT THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH
GOING TO SLEEP. # THIS SW ENHANCEMENT HAS NO EFFECT ON INDEPENDENT
BRAKES WHEN GOING TO SLEEP AND WAKING UP FROM SLEEP. AS HAS ALWAYS
BEEN THE CASE, FULL INDEPENDENT BRAKES WILL BE APPLIED UNTIL THE
PRIMARY OCU WAKES UP THE PARK STATE FAULT IS RECOVERED AND THE
OPERATOR COMMANDS A SPEED OTHER THAN STOP.

THERE WILL BE SOME SOFTWARE CHANGES TO THE GE RCL SYSTEM BEGINNING ON
OCTOBER 18, 2004 THAT THE REMOTE CONTROL OPERATOR WILL NOTICE.

1. BOTH reset buttons on the OCU need to be pressed simultaneously in
order to authorize Pullback Control Override. Previously, in order to
confirm that a Pullback Control override was authorized, the operator
could press either reset button on the OCU when prompted.

2. The SCU and OCU displays now indicate the yard service type, HUMP
or FLAT, the system is operating under. The SCU will now display
"Remote Control Mode HUMP" or "Remote Control Mode FLAT" depending
on the type of OCUs linked to the system. Similarly, the OCUs will
now display HUMP or FLAT in some of its message to indicate which yard
service type is being used.

3. The Secondary OCU Reverser knob must be set to Neutral in order to
Pitch and Catch. The OCU will display a prompt if the knob is not in
the Neutral position.

4. Changes have been made to the OCU in regards to Unlinking and
entering Sleep Mode: a. The option to unlink the OCU from the LCU has
been removed. Pressing the power button on the side of the OCU will
now only request permission to enter Sleep Mode. b. Neither OCU will
be allowed to enter Sleep Mode while the locomotive is moving. c. The
Secondary OCU shall not be able to enter sleep mode and power down
without authorization from the Primary OCU. If the Primary OCU does
not authorize the Secondary OCU to enter Sleep Mode, the Secondary OCU
will remain powered up and operational.

5. Only light and minimum automatic brake applications will be bailed.
All other automatic brake applications will not be bailed.

6. The bail mag valve will be activated for 30 seconds instead of 10
seconds whenever the automatic contribution to independent brake
cylinder pressure needs to be bailed. This change was made to ensure
that trail locomotives are properly bailed.

7. A new status event has been included to warn the operator if the
system is commanding Manual Sand but the Manual Sand train line does
not energize. The SCU and OCU will both display "Manual Sand Error".

8. A new park state fault (Fault 149, Excessive Flow While Moving)
will be declared if there is excessive flow in the brake pipe while
moving. Previously, movement was inhibited if flow was greater than 60
scfm only from a stopped position. Now a park state fault will be
declared if flow becomes greater than 60 scfm while moving. The SCU
and OCU will both display "Stop High Flow" when this fault is
declared. There is a timer that masks this fault for 120 seconds after
an automatic brake application is released, since that will cause
high flow while the brake pipe.

PURPOSE:
STOP LOCATION FOR REMOTE (HYDRA) CONTROL SWITCHES AND RADIO REMOTE
CONTROL SWITCHES.

EFFECTIVE DATE: 0001, JANUARY 01, 2006
CANCELLATION DATE: 2359, DECEMBER 31, 2006

CANCELLATIONS:

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY:

REMOTE CONTROL SWITCHES ARE BEING INSTALLED IN DESIGNATED REMOTE
CONTROL AREAS LISTED IN SUPERINTENDENT BULLETIN.

RTI SWITCH OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS:

GENERAL
AT MOST SITES WHERE REMOTE CONTROL LOCOMOTIVE SWITCHING IS BEING
IMPLEMENTED, RTI REMOTE CONTROL SWITCHES ARE BEING INSTALLED. THESE
SWITCHES ARE ELECTRONICALLY OPERATED EITHER FROM BATTERY POWER OR AN
AC SOURCE. SWITCHES RELYING ON BATTERY POWER ARE EASILY IDENTIFIED BY
THE LARGE PHOTOCELL ARRAY LOCATED NEAR THE SWITCH.

RTI SWITCHES ARE DESIGNED TO BE OPERATED IN THREE WAYS:

1. PUSH BUTTON LOCATED AT THE SWITCH
2. FOUR OR FIVE DIGIT CODE ENTERED USING THE KEYPAD ON A RADIO
3. MANUALLY USING A BUILT-IN HAND PUMP (IN THE EVENT OF A POWER
  FAILURE)

NOTE: NOT ALL RTI SWITCHES ARE INITIALLY SET UP TO BE OPERATED USING
THE RADIO CODE FEATURE. IF THAT FEATURE IS LATER ACTIVATED,
NOTIFICATION WILL BE PROVIDED.

RTI SWITCHES HAVE SEVERAL IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS THAT YOU NEED TO BE
AWARE OF. EACH RTI SWITCH HAS A CIRCUIT THAT EXTENDS FOR FIFTY (50)
FEET FROM THE CONTROL BOX FOR FACING POINT MOVES, AND CLEARANCE POINT
PLUS TWENTY (20) FEET FOR TRAILING POINT MOVES. THE LOCATIONS OF THESE
CIRCUITS ARE IDENTIFIED WITH REFLECTIVE MARKERS PLACED ON THE ENDS OF
THE CROSSTIES. A CAR OR LOCOMOTIVE OCCUPYING THE CIRCUIT WILL PREVENT
THE SWITCH POSITION FROM BEING CHANGED USING THE RADIO CODE OR PUSH
BUTTON.

WHEN THE RADIO CODE FEATURE IS ACTIVE, IT ALLOWS AN EMPLOYEE TO
"QUERY" THE SWITCH TO DETERMINE WHETHER ITS POSITION IS NORMAL OR
REVERSED. THE POSITION OF THE SWITCH CAN ALSO BE CHANGED USING A RADIO
CODE.

RTI SWITCHES ARE EQUIPPED WITH SENSORS TO DETERMINE THAT THE POINTS
ALIGN PRECISELY FOR THE DESIRED MOVEMENT. IF, FOR ANY REASON, A REMOTE
SWITCH MACHINE IS UNABLE TO THROW DUE TO ICE, ROCKS, DEBRIS, ETC.,
THE SWITCH MACHINE WILL RETURN BACK TO THE PREVIOUS STATE AND
BROADCAST A RADIO MESSAGE "UP (LOCATION), (DIRECTION), (SWITCH
NUMBER), IS (NORMAL OR REVERSED), STOP AND INSPECT"

USING THE RADIO CODE:

TO OPERATE OR QUERY AN RTI SWITCH USING THE DTMF (TONE) PAD REQUIRES A
PRECISE CODE FOR EACH SWITCH. THIS CODE WILL BE COMPRISED OF FOUR (4)
OR FIVE (5) CHARACTERS BEGINNING WITH THE "#" (POUND) KEY. USING THIS
CODE WILL ALLOW AN EMPLOYEE TO:

1. LINE THE SWITCH "NORMAL"
2. LINE THE SWITCH "REVERSE"
3. "QUERY" THE SWITCH TO DETERMINE WHAT POSITION IT IS IN WITHOUT
  COMMANDING A CHANGE

FOR EXAMPLE:

SETTEGAST YARD WILL HAVE ALL REMOTE CONTROL SWITCHES ASSIGNED TO RADIO
CHANNEL 07-07.

LEY ROAD TEAM TRACK SWITCH, REMOTE SWITCH #6

    #1621 NORMAL
    #1623 REVERSE
    #1625 QUERY

AFTER TUNING THE RADIO TO CHANNEL 07-07, ENTERING THE CODE "#1621"
WILL INITIATE A COMMAND TO POSITION THE LEY ROAD TEAM TRACK SWITCH TO
NORMAL POSITION. THIS WILL IN TURN GENERATE A RADIO RESPONSE "LEY ROAD
TEAM TRACK SWITCH NORMAL".

IF FOR ANY REASON A SWITCH MACHINE IS UNABLE TO THROW DUE TO ICE,
ROCKS, DEBRIS, ETC., THE SWITCH MACHINE WILL RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS
