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.
We've got a busy spring ahead. Please mark your calendar for these important events coming up soon:
1. "Sustainability Considerations for the Railway Industry" Webinar - April 20, 2021

NRC FirstLook 2021 was a worthy alternative to the NRC's annual in-person conference held each January. The series of four webinars attracted hundred of railway professionals.
“The NRC has always been a great resource for suppliers to build and foster relationships with the railroads, transit agencies and contractors. They provide educational opportunities and are always looking for ways to improve safety in railroad construction. Most importantly the NRC is like a family, it helps all of its members with opportunities to be successful as companies and as individuals. They help to foster great leaders and work to bring the next generation of railroaders into that fold.”
