A month later, RailTrends resonates

Many of the themes that surfaced at last month's RailTrends® summit — from the energy boom to domestic intermodal growth to the lingering uncertainty in D.C. and the extent to which it may (or may not) affect the rail industry in the near term — have been thematic elements in the North American rail story for a while now. At RailTrends, an eclectic array of stakeholders have always shared their individual stories at our annual event — and this year's model (held Dec. 10-11 in New York City) was no exception. For a glimpse into some of that storytelling, read independent transportation analyst and RailTrends program consultant Tony Hatch's RailTrends 2012 recap.
