29th AAR Annual Research Review April 23-25, 2024

Learn about industry research directly from the source

The 29th Annual AAR Research Review will feature presentations and panels with leaders from across the rail industry.

The 29th Annual AAR Research Review brings together technical experts from all sectors of the railway industry, as well as leaders from Class 1 and short line railroads, and suppliers from around the world. This highly anticipated industry event highlights results from the Association of American Railroads’ (AAR) Strategic Research Initiatives (SRI) Program. This year’s event will showcase current SRI projects via the first-ever track walk of the MxV Rail’s newly constructed Facility for Accelerated Service Testing (FAST®) Loop.

The collective investment in SRI research by AAR members continues to drive results for industry safety, reliability, and efficiency, and promotes effective development and deployment of innovative new technologies.
