Railroad Day on Capitol Hill is June 4

Railroad Day on Capital Hill - 2015Over the past 15 years, Railroad Day on Capitol Hill has proven to be an incredibly effective way to get the pro-rail message to Congress. The Railway Supply Institute (RSI) encourages all of its members to join us on June 4th. The size of the event, the geographical diversity of the participants, and the unified railroad industry message has focused Congress on issues affecting 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.

You can find out more details about Railroad Day including how to register and book your room on the ASLRRA website. Please book your room early as they usually sell out quickly. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Renaissance Washington DC Downtown. The group rate is $239 a night and the cut off date May 12, 2015.

Railroad Day on Capitol Hill is supported by the following associations: the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association, the Association of American Railroads, the National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association, the Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association, the Railway Supply Institute, Railway Systems Suppliers, Inc., and the Railway Tie Association.
