AREMA to co-sponsor European rail/technology tour in '08


The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) is joining the American Public Transportation Association and International Air Rail Organization to sponsor a European Rail & Technology Tour to be held March 1-16, 2008, in Amsterdam in conjunction with the UIC 6th World Congress on High Speed Rail.

The tour will feature an open itinerary and sample a "myriad" of new passenger-rail technologies implemented in Europe during the past decade, AREMA said. The event also will include visits to providers of many rail modes, including high speed, airport connections, multi-modal terminals, metros, light rail and dual-mode streetcars.

For more information, call AREMA Manager of Marketing & Program Services Lisa Hall at 301-459-3200, ext. 705 or send her an email at
