Thank you so much for the good news minute. They mean a lot to me with all of the crummy sensational type bad news all around. This is just the best kind of sweet! Thanks Mr. Conductor man whoever you are and thanks to the Deseret News, too! Keep them coming! There are still many caring loving human beings around us when we care to look!

A heartwarming story. I hope the conductor comes to realize what a difference his kind gesture made in this family's life.

I still remember the day 60 years ago when my brother and I stood on our daily watch of a local freight train. When the huge locomotive stopped right in front of us, I was embarrassed and hid myself, but my brother was brave and stayed right beside the track. The engineer invited him and helped him climb into the cab for a personalized tour. Roy was so proud and talked about it for weeks.

Thanks for this great story!

Good to see that there is some good and caring people out there, touched my soul and brought a tear to my eye, that chap will surely get a well done!

U.P. can't find out who the conductor was? Don't they have records of who drives their trains? Or does he just want to stay anonymous?

It brought a tear to my eye. The one that isn't dry.

Well Done. Very Well Done indeed.

My guess is that the engineer and conductor initiated the project, but I doubt it was done without permission and cooperation from the supervisors, at the very least. All train activity is tracked. If a train comes to a complete halt, there are reports to be filled out, etc. I'm with BU52--not only does UP know who the conductor and engineer were, they were in on it from the beginning. The crew for that day want to remain anonymous.

What a blessing for this young man and his family. I have an autistic Granddaughter, and know that any kindness shown to her is so special. We all need to be more kind to these special needs children, remembering that they are special spirits that have been sent here with special challenges to take a body and return to their Heavenly Father.
