Founded in 1978, the NRC connects members with other railway industry professionals and government legislators and policy makers. Together we work to create a positive business climate and to make railway construction and maintenance safer and more efficient.
Although NRC members often compete against each other, our collaboration furthers the railway construction industry and benefits North American freight, transit and commuter rail lines, our member contractors and suppliers, the general public, and our own professional growth.
The NRC organizes events designed to educate and foster collaboration to strengthen the railway industry, our members and member companies.
Thank you to everyone who participated in making our 17th annual NRC Railroad Equipment Auction a big success. We had record sales with more than 130 items sold by about two dozen sellers. Thank to you to the NRC Auction Committee for planning this worthwhile industry event that benefits a great cause: funding development of safety training resources for our members.
Mark your calendar for January 5 through 8, 2022, for the NRC Annual Conference and NRC-REMSA Exhibition, in Phoenix, AZ.

Review the NRC's statement regarding the INVEST is America Act. This comprehensive surface transportation legislation would modernize U.S. roads, bridges, transit and rail.
I have appreciated the opportunity to give back to the industry by participating on an NRC committee. The opportunities are diverse – from membership resources, the various events, scholarships and awards – but each committee works closely with NRC leadership to help bring all of its membership services to life. Who better to serve the industry than the very people working in it!
