Connections: Perhaps no other word describes so succinctly what the short line industry is about. It is what we do, how we work, and how our suppliers conduct business - and it is also the name of the annual gathering where we all meet to network and learn. American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association's Annual Convention is the premier event in our industry, featuring an exhibition with over 200 booths, social events that facilitate interactions with your fellow railroaders, more than 40 breakout sessions addressing railroading's hottest issues, in a location that enhances the many potential ways to connect at this meeting. We are confident that this year's event will provide you with an opportunity to expand your existing Connections, while also helping you to create new ones. So join us in San Diego in April and Don't just meet... Connect!
