This springtime event brings together buyers and sellers of used railroad construction and maintenance equipment. All contractors, suppliers, and railroads are invited to sell and/or donate their equipment.
Past auctions have historically featured a range of used equipment, including the following:
How It Works - A buyer's Premium of 10 percent is charged on all items.
Auction Proceeds for a Worthy Cause - A percentage of the buyer’s premium serves as a donation to the NRC’s safety training programs, including the ongoing safety training DVD series and FRA Part 243 templates.

“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.”
