In business since its establishment in Chicago in 1856, Railway Age is the transportation industry’s longest-running trade publication, covering railway technology, operations, strategic planning, marketing, equipment finance and other topics such as legislative, regulatory and labor/management developments. What began as a weekly in the mid-19th century is, in the 21st century, an information resource incorporating digital and print publishing of a monthly magazine, a website (www.railwayage.com); daily and weekly electronic newsletters (Rail Group News, Passenger Rail News, Innovations); webinars; social media (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn); industry conferences and custom publishing services.
Railway Age is the flagship publication of Simmons-Boardman Publishing Corp. With Railway Track & Structures (RT&S), International Railway Journal (IRJ), the Railway Educational Bureau (REB) and Simmons-Boardman Books, it is part of the Simmons-Boardman Rail Group, the world’s largest source of rail industry information.
With Railway Age since 1992, William C. Vantuono has broadened and deepened coverage of the technological revolution that is so swiftly changing the industry.
