"I am pleased to announce our partnership with METROMagazine,” said Raghav Sharma, CFO of iRail.com. "METRO will bring its in-depth focus and expert coverage of the transit marketplace, providing our members with access to the best possible industry information." iRail.com’s community and content features will provide the rail industry with a comprehensive, industry specific resource center. Integral to these features will be content from METROMagazine, spanning articles, product reviews and discussion forums with METRO editors, among others "We're very excited about our new relationship with iRail.com,” said Cliff Henke, editor and associate publisher of METRO. "iRail.com will help broaden our reach into the rail industry, the place we began when our magazine was called Electric Traction back in 1904.” iRail.com is the leading net market for the rail industry, designed for the industry, by industry veterans. iRail.com provides freight railroads, passenger railroads, transit agencies, manufacturers, suppliers and service providers with an on-line marketplace for the procurement of equipment, materials and services backed by comprehensive and specific industry content.
