SANTA FE INTRODUCES NEW PREMIUM TRAIN SERVICE

 SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Santa Fe Railway's intermodal business unit has introduced a premium container and trailer service for truckload customers between Chicago, Ill., and Los Angeles, Calif.
 The 188 train departs Chicago every Friday and Saturday with an evening cutoff and third morning availability to accommodate truckload customers,''
says Owen Zidar, general director-intermodal marketing and sales. This service complements our existing premium service for less-than-truckload customers. The initial reaction from customers has been overwhelming.''
 Jeff Brashares, president, Railvan Consolidated, Inc., is one customer who
has found the service beneficial. We love the 188 service! We use it every weekend to ship General Electric and Thompson Consumer Electronic products from the Midwest to the West Coast. It's great to have motor carrier competitive service to California in containers for truckload customers. This is a service we, the customers, requested and Santa Fe delivered.''
 Pickups and setouts are available at Kansas City, Kan., and San Bernardino, Calif. The 188 service is expected to be offered every day in early 1993.
