Members of the rail industry, this is your chance to be heard!
For the past 15 years, anyone with a vested interest in rail has been using Railroad Day on Capitol Hill to get their message to members of Congress, congressional staffers, and federal and state agency staff members. The annual meeting brings together over 600 folks from Class I, II, and III railroad personnel, shippers, state and local government representatives, as well as members from the supplier community. By presenting their ideas on how to make rail a stronger and more cohesive part of the American economy in person, they move the conversation forward much faster than emails and phone calls can accomplish.
This year, on March 3, 2016 you will once again have a chance to join your colleagues and make your voice heard.
Speak with your legislators. Present your concerns. Tell the #railstory.
This year’s agenda includes:
March 3, 2016
