    Railway Age builds on its successful Crude by Rail conferences with a revised and expanded format: ENERGY BY RAIL. We'll examine the issues and trends surrounding the many types of liquid energy and ancillary products that move in railcars. Liquid energy, a growing source of railroad traffic as well as a driver of new freight car construction for carbuilders and component suppliers, is tightly regulated and a source of public concern over safety.
