Dear Freight Car Maintenance Professional


We begin 2024 with a continued commitment to provide valuable education and training to our members.  We will be exploring ways to expand membership benefits with webinars and newsletters. 

If you are not familiar with our education offerings at our annual conference, take a look at our archives.  We are now able to offer you the video presentations of selected sessions at our past annual conferences. Be sure to check them out!

The 2024 RSI Expo and Conference will be held October 9-11 in Chicago, IL.  The RTSA will provide this year’s in the upcoming months. We will cover many of the current issues critical to every railcar maintenance professional, presented by those among us who are on the leading edge of today’s technology and regulations. 

 Our Association exists to provide you and our members with a solid knowledge and understanding of railcar maintenance. This continuing mission is only possible with your support through your membership and your participation in our annual technical conference.
