Your right about the trucks, UP still uses trucks as well. Union Paicific acually owns a trucking company called 'Over-Nite'. I dont know if it is my wrong thinking but i dont think UP had a UPS contract in 1997. I thought the contract was failrly recent one, as of 2002 or so. Please somebody correct me if i am wrong. I beleive it was BNSF who always had the UPS contract and then BNSF was asked to do more UPS moves and so they (BNSF) turned some of the UPS moves over to UP. Again correct my information. I belive in 1997 that the truck were used for high priority goods, like perishables and other mail, but not UPS.
