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.
The NRC invites you to join us for NRC FirstLook 2021! This compelling new event will provide invaluable and timely insights from railway leaders for the new year through a series of four high-profile, high-value online webcasts beginning on January 6, 2021. An alternative to our Annual Conference held each January, NRC FirstLook 2021 will deliver many of the same benefits that has made our Annual Conference the railway industry's premier event.Learn More

I am really proud to have followed in my father’s footsteps who shaped and engrained in me the importance of the NRC and getting involved. (The NRC) through friendships and dialogue with fellow competitors, relationships with the supply community, and with a vision that private railroad contractors could and would have a seat at the table when it came to building and maintaining our country’s railroad infrastructure … and that we could and would do it safely, efficiently, profitably, and of the highest quality.
