What our members say…

“Attendance at the NRC annual conference has been invaluable. The updates from the chief engineers at the various railroads give our company insight into what work we can anticipate in the pipeline for the upcoming year. This, along with the strong networking opportunities amongst individuals across the entire railroading community, make this an event that I look forward to year after year.”
