Railway Supply Institute Committee on Tank Cars
As federal, state and local governments across North America scramble to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, railroads and their suppliers—including tank car builders, repair shops, and lessors—are doing their part to get essential goods to where they are most needed.
Mike O’Malley began his tenure as President of the Railway Supply Institute (RSI) on Feb. 1, 2018 taking over for Tom Simpson, who has retired.
Each year, hundreds of executives, technical experts, engineers and safety officers from across the railway supplier universe engage in an activity that, while largely unheralded, is enormously important to our industry and the North American economy.
The Railway Supply Institute Committee on Tank Cars (RSICTC) has named veteran railcar design and regulatory compliance and safety professional John Byrne as Vice Chairman. Byrne succeeds William Finn, who retired earlier in 2016.
The Railway Supply Institute Committee on Tank Cars (RSI-CTC) says it has moved to intervene in pending litigation in three federal courts to support the U.S. Department of Transportation’s recently issued Final Rule covering transportation of flammable liquids by rail.
Greenbrier on Oct. 10, 2014 reiterated its support for the Pipelines and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s (PHMSA) proposed Option 2 design for new tank cars in flammable service built after Oct. 1, 2015, which will be designated the DOT-116.
