Technically, this should be in railfanning, but it's too moving to exile it to there, at least for now.

In part, this is why we do what we do-for people. Thank you for sharing this.It ain't just about hardware.

This is another instance that verifies to me that there are good people, and there is decency, in this world. It just doesn't get the spotlight like all the negativity in this world does.

Well done, Union Pacific. That really touched my heart. You easily have my respect.

Rest in peace, Elliot. I'm glad you got a proper send-off.

Wonderful story. Someone upstairs is a rail fan, it seems.
