Join Us for Railroad Day on Capitol Hill


Railroad Day on Capitol Hill has proven to be the single most effective way to get our industry's message to Congress. The size of the event, the geographical diversity of the participants, and the unified railroad industry message has focused Congress on our issues like never before.

You put the real-life face on the issues that matter most to our industry. When you turn out in force you demonstrate that those issues affect a large group of individuals who employ an even larger group of people from across the country. And you can't rely on the other guy to carry your message. You need to come to Washington and join with your fellow rail industry workers to 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.

Schedule- May 8, 2019
7:00 am - 9:00 am Optional Informational Session at the Hart Senate Building (light breakfast served)
9:00 am - 4:30 pm Appointments on the Hill
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm Reception at Union Station

In the weeks leading up to Railroad Day we will offer two webinars that will further explain how to prepare for your appointments on the Hill.  We will also instruct you on how to find your schedule of appointments on the app.  If you are not able to attend one of the webinars or need more assistance you may stop by the Hart Building where Railroad Day staff will be available to answer questions.  If you have attended Railroad Day in the past and are familiar with the process you will receive your schedule on your app and may directly to appointments if you wish.

Better yet, make plans to stay overnight and attend the Reception at Union Station and join the almost 500 representatives from all areas of the railroad industry, as well as Congressional, Federal, State and Local Government agencies. 

Who Should Attend?
Attendance is open to all Class I, II, and III railroad personnel, shippers, state and local government representatives, as well as members from the supplier community with an interest in furthering the political goals of the railroad industry.
