Progressive Railroading's 2021 Rising Stars

Eight years ago, Progressive Railroading created the Rising Stars recognition program as a way to highlight — and celebrate — some of the industry's up-and-comers. And for the past seven years, we've asked readers to help us identify individuals under the age of 40 who are making a positive difference in the rail industry.

Earlier this year, readers nominated more than 100 individuals of individuals who work for Class Is, regionals, short lines, passenger railroads, transit agencies, government, academic institutions, engineering firms, contractors and suppliers. From that group, we selected the 2020 Rising Stars.

This year's class of 25 comprises a diverse set of men and women chosen based on their contributions to the industry, career achievements, demonstrated leadership, professional association activity or community involvement. This month, we feature profiles of our 2020 Rising Stars.


Surfacing & Tamping Equipment

Tamping and surfacing help maintenance-of-way (MOW) crews roads boost track stability, and in turn, help railroads operate more safely and efficiently. Surfacing and tamping equipment providers share information on their current offerings.


Rail Lubrication and Friction Modifiers

Companies that produce track lubricants and friction modifiers continue to develop products and systems to help railroads reduce lateral force, and wheel and flange wear — and extend rail and wheel life, as well as cut fuel consumption. This month, suppliers share information on new (as well as tried and true) offerings.
