(The UtahRails YouTube channel was discontinued in February 2014, after the content was removed in October 2013 at the request of Union Pacific Railroad.)
The UtahRails YouTube channel was started in August 2012 to share and to preserve a group of 45 Union Pacific television commercials which had been released more than 20 years ago by the Union Pacific museum on a laser disk.
In October 2013, I added a series of digital videos converted from more than 50 VHS tapes produced by Union Pacific for employee training and orientation, including 45 of the 57 Rail Views programs produced by Union Pacific in the 1993 to 1996 time period. Three days later, a request was received from Union Pacific Railroad to remove the videos.
