Otherwise: Too many photos submitted to TRAINS these days lack what the Art Department terms "correct horizontal orientation." That is, too often in the print locomotives appear to be running downhill, a fault which must be corrected here by laborious cropping of the print. If hasty composition was necessary on the negative (and the 5632 or TT1 will appear when least expected!), please try to restore the horizontals when making the enlargement. Thanks. Photographer Phil Hastings, 163 Lovejoy, Waterloo, Ia., who accompanied me on steam searches a few seasons back and has innumerable credits to his account in the mag, lost the 32 x 6-inch green bound notebook which contains data on all the film he's exposed since 1955. He apparently mislaid it in the Duluth area, so if you have perhaps picked it up, please contact Phil. Again, Eye-catchers: New York thanks. Central's EMD passenger cab unit painted jade green, CB&Q's Chinese red hoppers, Santa Fe's prewar E6 passenger units with embossed EMC data plates and long noses intact, the solid bank of push-pulls that confronts one these days in C&NW's Chicago station. . . . It is with very real regret that we report the passing last June of photographer R. P. Morris. Bob and his postcard-size Graflex were regular contributors to TRAINS; many will recall his classic studies of Jersey Central Camelbacks. locomotives, particularly The two were inseparable.

What's in it for you?
When you see a freight train go by don't you often wonder what's in it?
You'd be surprised. If there's one thing that provides a cross-section of America's way of life, it is the freight car. Here you find apples and automobiles, bassinets and breakfast foods, carpets and corn, divans and dishes. But you name them...you use them.
A major part of Union Pacific's activity is hauling freight. We've been doing this for almost a century and the years have brought us a high degree of skill. Ever conscious of our responsibility, we are constantly improving our transportation techniques.
Today's Union Pacific service is better than at any other time in our history. This is true of freight transportation and of the service we provide for travelers -our DOMELINERS between Chicago or St. Louis and the Pacific Coast are proof of this!
Next time you see a Union Pacific freight roll by ask yourself this question: "What's in it...for me?"
