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.

They provide educational opportunities and are always looking for ways to improve safety in railroad construction.

They help to foster great leaders and work to bring the next generation of railroaders into that fold.”
