Railway Age’s October 2022 issue is now available digitally, covering how the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Brightline are building for the future and presenting the 2023 Railroad Financial Desk Book.

Inside, you’ll find feature stories on:

• Rail Fastening Systems — Suppliers continue to find new ways to deliver a tight hold and longer track life, helping to ensure the safety of heavy-haul, high-speed passenger rail and transit applications across North America and beyond.

• New York MTA: Metropolitan Marvel — The world’s biggest transit agency is bouncing back, in a big way.

• Train Control — Next-generation train control—CBTC, PTC and various iterations of both—is on an evolutionary track.

• Brightline — Florida’s private-sector passenger railroad realizes its dream to connect Miami and Orlando while continuing to look ahead.

• Condition Trending and Predictive Analytics — In the tenth edition of “Timeout for Tech with Gary T. Fry, Ph.D., P.E.,” Fry focuses on using data to support condition trending of engineered systems.

The 2023 Railroad Financial Desk Book, written by Railway Age Financial Editor David Nahass, addresses multi-edged difficulties—from the averted strike to railroads, railcars and inflation to what is going on in the lease market. The Desk Book also includes, for easy reference, a directory of finance companies, arrangers, lessors and professional services firms.

Additionally, Capitol Hill Contributing Editor Frank N. Wilner asks: Can the Surface Transportation Board avoid political division? And Chuck Baker, President of the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association, explains why small roads are the backbone of the ag supply chain.
