Overview

Roadway service was Union Pacific's term for equipment assigned to non-revenue service (snow plows and derricks), and maintenance of way (trackwork and bridges and buildings), along with other assignments under the overall name of "Company Service". The assignment was usually abbreviated in equipment records as "Rdwy." There is no indication in internal documents or records that Union Pacific used the phrase "Maintenance of Way," or MoW.

Prior to 1959, the road numbers of cars assigned to Roadway service were usually numbered with a leading zero. Examples include OWRR&N 0596-0598 for the three Roadway Boarding cars shown immediately below.

In 1959, Union Pacific adopted the use of the 900000-series numbers for cars assigned to non-revenue company service, and non-revenue roadway service. The existing road numbers with leading zeros were filled out to become 900000-series numbers; OWRR&N 0596-0598 became OWRR&N 900596-900598.
