Cover Story: Meet Progressive Railroading's 2015 Rising Stars
The challenges of succession planning, employee recruitment and worker retention are contemplated daily at railroads and rail-related businesses across North America. Progressive Railroading set out to discover not only how they're trying to replace longtime railroaders, but who some of the industry's up-and-comers might be. We spotlight the 20 Rising Stars — individuals under the age of 40 who have made or are making a positive impact on the rail industry early in their careers.

Class I Focus: Canadian Pacific
How's the year going for CP? Where's the growth coming from, and where do the railroad's chief strategists expect it to come from in the near term? How are they preparing for the opportunities and corresponding challenges that'll come next? For answers, we check in with CP President and Chief Operating Officer Keith Creel.

Short Lines/Regionals: A Safety Institute of Their Own
We chart the Short Line Safety Institute's formation, pilot results and the scheduled 2016 roll out with American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association and FRA officials, as well as others involved in the project.

Information Technology: What Are Railroads Doing To Compete For IT Talent?
Progressive Railroading explores recruiting and retention strategies with IT leaders and hiring managers from a cross-section of railroads.

Workforce Development: Railroads & Jobs for Veterans
Four Class Is were recently recognized by as “Most Valuable Employers for Military” in 2015. We speak with Class I hiring officials about how and where veterans fit into their recruiting strategies.

Intermodal Update: The Rise of Domestic Intermodal
Freight-rail executives and industry observers weigh in on domestic intermodal growth. How are they tapping into the opportunities and what are the impediments to continued growth?

More Intermodal: The Role of Midwestern Ports
Ports play a key role in the North American intermodal evolution and not just on the coasts. We explore business, trade patterns and cargo-hauling trends with officials at a cross-section of Midwest ports.

Maintenance of Way: The State of Railroad Bridges
We talk with freight-railroad officials about their current rebuilding or replacement projects in place for aging rail bridges and trestles.
