Written by 

FOX Business Network reporter Dagen McDowell on Tuesday, May 17, got a behind-the-scenes look at Union Pacific and the business of freight railroading—something most people rarely see or understand—as a part of the network’s American Icon series.

McDowell spent the day at UP’s Omaha headquarters, speaking with top executives about rail industry issues as well as the company’s future. Union Pacific senior staff members interviewed included Chairman and CEO Jim Young, Executive Vice President and CFO Robert M. Knight, Operations Executive Vice President Lance M. Fritz, Marketing and Sales Executive Vice President Jack Koraleski, and Car and Locomotive Engineering General Director Michael Iden.
