Railroad Day on Capitol Hill 2023

Railroad Day on Capitol Hill 2023 is May 17. After three years of participation via Zoom, we will be scheduling in-person meetings!

Railroad Day on Capitol Hill  

Plan to join the freight rail industry in the annual tradition of Railroad Day on Capitol Hill when the entire industry — Class I railroads, short line railroads, suppliers, labor organizations, and supporting associations — meets with House and Senate leaders and Hill offices representing states and districts across the country to ensure that our voices are heard and our priorities are understood.


Registrants will be invited to attend one Zoom Training Session, available on the following dates/times:

  • May 4 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern
  • May 9 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern

Don’t miss the opportunity to tell your story and help ensure that your elected leaders become champions for rail priorities in Congress.

For a better understanding of why attending this event is critical to your business, watch the video below.
