Railroad Night 2021, was held this year on October 19th, in the Michigan Tech Memorial Union Ballroom.  The event included a social period with our industry guests from 5-6 PM and dinner with industry and our keynote address starting at 6 PM.  We also hosted a "Meet the Industry" panel from 4 -5PM.  

Pasi Lautala, the director of the Rail Transportation Program (RTP) opened the dinner portion of the evening with an overview of the Rail Program, and a welcome to our visitors.  Stanton Schmitz, the Railroad Engineering and Activities Club (REAC) provided an overview of the REAC activities for the year.  Jim Cowan, retired CEO of American Railcar Industries and Senior VP of Greenbrier Companies, provided an awesome keynote address!  

We'd like to thank all of our participants, and the industry representatives who participated in the event.  The event poster below shows the logos for those companies!
