Railroad Day on Capitol Hill

Railroad Day on Capitol Hill is March 4, 2020. 

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.

In the weeks leading up to Railroad Day we will offer three 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 have attended Railroad Day in the past and are familiar with the process you will receive your schedule on your app and may go directly to appointments.

General Information
Thank you for your interest in Railroad Day on Capitol Hill. Hill appointments run from as early as 9:00am and can go as late as 4:30pm, so when making your travel arrangements, please plan your flight and train times accordingly so you do not miss any of your scheduled appointments. 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. 

If there is a specific Congressional meeting that you would like to participate in that would not be an obvious default choice, please contact Erin Delaney with the name(s) of the Representatives/Senators.

Railroad Day on the Hill Informational Webinars
Webinars will be held before Railroad day to explain how to conduct your hill visits, as well as how to get your schedule on the app.
