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.
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.
Well Done. Very Well Done indeed.
It brought a tear to my eye. The one that isn't dry.
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?
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!
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!
Awesome and what a cool way to do Union Pacific! Thank You!
What a thoughtful thing to do. Kudos to the conductor!
That's a neat story and hat's off to these UP RR workers! What great guys!
Ditto the above. This made my day.
What a marvelously classy thing to do. Great job Union Pacific.
A heartwarming story. I hope the conductor comes to realize what a difference
his kind gesture made in this family's life.
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!
