Supplier group forms committee to promote rail

Posted on June 27, 2013

The Railway Supply Institute (RSI) announced the formation of a new Passenger Rail Committee, which will support, connect and advocate for railway suppliers who provide equipment and services to high speed and intercity passenger rail.

The Committee will promote the movement of passengers by rail and represent the supply community on legislation and regulations affecting domestic suppliers and passenger rail systems.

“RSI’s Passenger Rail Committee will operate with the goal of increasing supplier visibility in Washington, D.C. on intercity and high speed passenger rail issues as well as the future funding of rail infrastructure projects,” said RSI President Thomas Simpson. “This committee’s work will be important, as demand for commuter and intercity passenger rail continues to grow."  

The committee will meet face to face or via conference call four times a year, with the first meeting planned for July 11, 2013 in Washington, D.C. Additional activities will include a meeting with Jeff Morales, Chief Executive Officer of the California High Speed Rail Authority as well as the annual RSI roundtable meeting with Amtrak President/CEO Joseph Boardman.

The Railway Supply Institute represents companies involved in the manufacture of products and services in the freight car, locomotive, maintenance-of-way, communications and signaling, and transit industries. For more information visit RSI’s website, www.rsiweb.org, or call (202) 347-4664.
