What our members say…

“The NRC Equipment Auction provides an excellent opportunity to find buyers for our surplus track equipment and to purchase used track equipment that can be refurbished or repurposed for upcoming specialized projects. The contacts and relationships I have made while attending the auctions over the years are a valuable resource that I rely on frequently. As an added benefit, a portion of these sales provides a vital funding stream for the NRC safety resource that benefit all our members.”
