New “hip” UP spokesman?
Author: Copy19

Yesterday I was reading an interesting story on-line in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle about the donation  of locomotives and cars to the group in Silvis, IL.  It quoted a UP spokesman who assured that donation was not  prelude to the demise of the steam program despite what some railfans are posting on the internet.  This surprised me as I haven't seen much proactive PR from UP for some time.  It also surprised me that someone in Omaha HQ is reading rail internet sites.

I am not familiar with this man and assume he is new to the PR staff.  His name has a peculiar spelling and I can't go back and check the spelling because the story is blocked to me unless I subscribe to the paper.  His name is something like Mike Jackson although "Jackson" was spelled differently.  Anyone have info on him?  I don't have any close contacts downtown in headquarters anymore I can ask.

The 4th time I clicked on it I finally got the subscriber warning. There are ways around that though

I was able to read it completely the first time I clicked it. It might be because I already pay a subscription for my local paper, so I can see if I made the obituaries yet.

Most news sites give you three free looks before they lock you out unless you decide to start paying.

We’ve been trying to streamline our operations,” noted Mike Jaixen, a spokesperson for U.P. “We realized that we do not need as big of a fleet as we had” of older train equipment, he said. RRHMA “was a group that was able to find a use for them.”

The Tribune called me at the UPHS office one day and interviewed me about the announcement by UP of their donation of the equipment to the RRHMA.

Thanks. I remember him. He was in IT back in my time.  I thought he spelled his last name "Jackson".   My bad.  He's a good guy.
