Item 8.01 Other Events.

Union Pacific Corporation (the Company) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K (Form 8-K) to reflect the impact of a change from an acceptable accounting principle to a preferable accounting principle on the financial information contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 5, 2010 (Form 10-K). The information in this Form 8-K is not an amendment to or restatement of the Form 10-K.

We historically accounted for rail grinding costs as a capital asset. Effective January 1, 2010, we changed our accounting policy for rail grinding costs from a capitalization method, under which we capitalized the cost of rail grinding and depreciated such capitalized costs, to a direct expense method, under which we expense rail grinding costs as incurred. This change was reflected as a change in accounting principle from an acceptable accounting principle to a preferable accounting principle. The expense as incurred method is preferable, as it eliminates the subjectivity in determining the period of benefit associated with rail grinding over which to depreciate the associated capitalized costs. When the accounting principle was retrospectively applied, as shown in this Form 8-K, net income for the years ended December 31, 2009, 2008, and 2007 decreased by $8 million, $3 million, and $7 million, or $0.01, $0.01, and $0.02 per share, respectively.

The following Items of the Form 10-K have been presented retrospectively to reflect the change in accounting principle for rail grinding and are attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K:
