Under Gray’s direction, Union Pacific Railroad became one of the few railroads in the nation to pay dividends on common stock during the Depression. During this time period, Gray also became a pioneer in the introduction of streamlined diesel-powered passenger trains. Gray was a leader in representing the railroads in matters of national railway policy helping establish the Association of American Railroads in 1934.
