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.
Join with other railway industry leaders on March 4, 2020 to share your story about the positive impact of rail and railway construction and maintenance in the communities where you live and work. Travel to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., to meet with elected officials and staff to exchange information about legislation and regulatory issues affecting railway contractors, suppliers and the entire railway industry.Learn More
