NRC's Baker to review Hurricane Sandy response efforts at next week's RailTrends conference
At Progressive Railroading's RailTrends® conference next week in
New York City, National Railroad Construction & Maintenance
Association Inc. President Chuck Baker will present "Hurricane Sandy:
The Response of the Rail Industry and Railroad Contractors."
The session was developed exclusively for RailTrends after the super
storm impacted portions of the nation's most heavily used rail lines in
the Northeast, shutting down New York City's and New Jersey's
commuter-rail services, and Amtrak's regional routes for days.
RailTrends also was impacted by Hurricane Sandy, which forced the
rescheduling of the event from its original dates of Nov. 1 and 2 to
Dec. 10 and 11. The conference will be held at the W New York Hotel in
Other RailTrends presenters include CN Executive Vice President and
Chief Marketing Officer Jean-Jacques Ruest; Union Pacific Railroad VP of
Engineering Joe Santamaria; CSX Transportation VP of Intermodal Bill
Clement; Kansas City Southern EVP of Sales and Marketing Patrick
Ottensmeyer; Amtrak President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph
Boardman; OmniTRAX Inc. President and CEO Gary Long; Alaska Railroad
Corp. President and CEO Christopher Aadnesen; Genesee & Wyoming Inc.

President and Chief Executive Officer Ed Hamberger; Railway Association
of Canada President and CEO Michael Bourque; National Industrial
Transportation League President and CEO Bruce Carlton; and American
Short Line and Regional Railroad Association President Richard Timmons.
Also during the conference, Progressive Railroading and
RailTrends will acknowledge Union Pacific Corp. Chairman Jim Young, who
is the 2012 recipient of their "Railroad Innovator Award" that
recognizes an individual's outstanding achievement in the rail industry.
Titled "2012 Freight Game Changers: Coal, Commodities, Politics and
Passenger Rail," this year's RailTrends conference includes
comprehensive content that was created in response to the internal
realities of the rail industry, top-of-mind topics and button-pushing
subjects, such as the future of Amtrak, energy markets, information
technology, intermodal and rail safety.
