2024 Heavy Haul Seminar

May 23-24, 2024

The Heavy Haul Seminar is devoted to examining wheel/rail and vehicle/track interaction on heavy haul freight and shared-track passenger systems. The latest information on new and existing technology, and the ways in which it is being used to improve wheel/rail interaction on freight and passenger railways will be presented. Information is disseminated through a combination of seminar sessions, dedicated Q&A periods and “InfoZone” sessions.

Since 1994, the Heavy Haul Seminar has been bringing together track and mechanical users, government regulators, researchers and suppliers in a positive, educational setting like none other in the industry.
