Register for March 3 Railroad Day on Capital Hill
Please join the Railway Supply Institute and your rail industry colleagues on March 3 for Railroad Day on Capitol Hill. This annual event has proven to be an incredibly effective way to get the pro-rail message to Congress and puts you in front of your legislators. You can put a real face and real story on issues that affect our industry. The size of the event, the geographical diversity of the participants, and the unified railroad industry message has focused Congress on issues in our industry.
Railroad Day on Capitol Hill is open to all Class I, II, and III railroad personnel, suppliers, contractors, labor, shippers, as well as state and local government representatives, with an interest in furthering the political goals of the railroad industry. By joining with your fellow rail industry workers, you can help drive home to Congress the important role that this industry plays in restoring America’s economy, improving America’s environment, and connecting America in the global marketplace.
