Welcome! Our annual conference will be held March 17-19, 2020 at The Lodge at Deadwood in Deadwood, SD. There is no charge to attend the conference.  We're looking forward to seeing everyone again and welcoming new members and exhibitors in 2020. 

The 2020 Conference will feature presentations from the Short Line Safety Institute, ASLRRA, FRA, Railroad Retirement Board and other leaders in the railroad industry

What Can we Do to Improve?

If you have any ideas or subject matter you would like to have included in our next conference, please go to "Contact Us" and give us your thoughts!

Through a grant from the Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration, the Short Line Safety Institute (SLSI) provides hazardous materials training directly to “hazmat employees” or through a “train-the-trainer” program. This training supplements the required Hazardous Materials Regulation (HMR) and does not supplant training for short line and regional railroad employees.


With their team of subject matter experts, they have built a comprehensive program that models key learning aspects of the HMR. Their robust curriculum includes five content modules, with a learning review at the end of each module.
