Union Pacific recently went to Santa Teresa, N.M., to mark the final phase of a $400 million project. In an interview about the project, UP Senior Vice President of Corporate Relations Bob Turner discussed the rail industry as "a barometer of economic activity." Meanwhile, UP celebrated its 150th anniversary last year, and the event put special focus on UP employees, a critical factor in the railroad's success, said UP President and CEO Jack Koraleski. "After 150 years, we're at the top of our game," he said. "Not many companies make it to 150 years and, after 150, we're having the best year in our history."
