The September 2021 issue of Railway Age is now available digitally, with the latest on Kansas City Southern’s potential merger, plus the Product Innovations Showcase 2021.
• Biodiesel Developments: Progress Rail green-lights raising the biodiesel bar to 20% for two EMD prime-movers. Union Pacific has embraced the change.
• Alstom’s New Americas: Railway Age talks with Alstom Americas Region President Michael Keroullé on the Bombardier Transportation integration and the Western Hemisphere railway market.
• TTCI R&D: Transportation Technology Center Inc.’s Walter Rosenberger (Scientist) and Kenny Morrison (Senior Engineer I) address setting hunting speed restrictions—deterministically.
• A Single Source of Truth: Workforce management is evolving from paper-based record-keeping to cloud-based applications that improve efficiency and transparency.
Railway Age is also pleased to present the 2021 Product Innovations Showcase. As the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the coronavirus continue, many industry meetings and trade shows have gone virtual or have been postponed, out an abundance of caution. As the industry’s partner for generations, Railway Age recognizes the importance of the supply community continuing to interface with customers. The Showcase spotlights many of the industry’s top suppliers—innovators all.
Plus, Railway Age Financial Editor David Nahass covers the potential merger of Kansas City Southern—with CN or Canadian Pacific—now that the Surface Transportation Board has rejected the CN-KCS voting trust. The dust has settled, he writes, and “the pieces on the board clearly favor CP.”
