One of the items in my November issue column noted the need to reschedule our annual RailTrends® summit due to the effects of Superstorm Sandy. The new dates: Dec. 10-11, 2012. The location: Same — the W New York Hotel in Manhattan. Just about every one of our originally scheduled speakers is still joining us — for that, we are most grateful. The date change even has enabled us to add three others:

• Ed Hamberger, president and chief executive officer, Association of American Railroads

• Gary Long, president and chief executive officer, OmniTRAX Inc.

• Joe Santamaria, vice president - engineering, Union Pacific Railroad           

 Here's the complete agenda.
