Union Pacific Magazine
Union Pacific Magazine was discontinued during the Depression. During war years and the 1950s the company issued what were called the "Pink Bulletins" which carried info for travel promotion and some employee news. (John Bromley)
Union Pacific Magazine was first published in January 1922. (Thornton Waite)
The Seattle Public Library has the Union Pacific Magazine for the years 1924-32.
The first issue of INFO magazine (Volume 1, Number 1) was in November 1968. It lasted until 2001.
The first issue of INFO was four pages and included coverage of the formal opening of Bailey Yard for eastbound trains in North Platte, Nebraska, on October 25, 1968.
In March 1983, following the merger of UP, MP and WP, the three companies' magazines were combined into a single new magazine called InfoNews, with a new Volume 1, Number 1 issue.
In October 1984, the name was changed back to Info magazine.
- Western Pacific's employee magazine was called Mileposts, and was published from August 1949 until March 1983.
- Missouri Pacific's employee magazine was called Missouri Pacific Lines, published until after D. B. Jenks arrived in January 1961 and started his cost saving programs. One of the later issues was Volume 36, Nos. 5-6; November-December 1962. At some time after late 1962, the magazine was changed to Mopac News and was published in as a newspaper format. MoPac News continued publication until Volume 57, Number 2, February 1983, at which time it was combined with UP's Info, to create Info-News.
