Railroad Day on the Hill

Join with other industry leaders

on Capitol Hill

  • Tell your railroad story
  • Advocate for our industry
  • Build relationships with Members of Congress and their staff


The NRC works together with the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) to schedule and coordinate Railroad Day on Capitol Hill, an annual lobbying event in Washington, D.C. For the first time since 2020, rail industry leaders will gather in person in Washington, D.C., for this important advocacy event.

Railroad day on Capitol Hill draws hundreds of stakeholders in the railway industry – including railroad, transit and commuter rail representatives as well as contractors, suppliers and rail customers – to meet with their congressional members. Their goal is to tell the successful story of railways in the United States – the positive impact on the local, regional, national and global economy – and to request a supportive legislative and regulatory approach.

Attendance is open to all Class I, II, and III railroad personnel, shippers, labor rail representatives, state and local government representatives, as well as members from the contractor and supplier community with an interest in furthering the political goals of the railroad industry.

We strongly encourage NRC members and others from their companies to participate in this important opportunity to exercise their First Amendment rights in support of our industry.

Date:  May 17, 2023

What our members say…

Railroad Day on the Hill is our opportunity to advocate for issues important to the industry. Personally, I look forward to this event each year because I truly believe it is essential for our perspective to be heard. I am continually amazed by the turnout, especially by our member companies. It is an honor to spend the day in Washington representing our industry, the railroads, Ames Construction and the NRC.
