Welcome to the Railroad Passenger Car Alliance
French Lick Annual Conference - Jan 12-16, 2017
Join RPCA for our 35th annual Conference to take place in French Lick, Indiana.
French Lick Scenic Railway is proud to be the 2017 host for the
Railroad Passenger Car Alliance Annual Conference on
January 12-16, 2017 in French Lick, Indiana. We are excited
to offer a jam-packed conference with seminars and classes on a
range of topics. There will be more to do than one person can
complete, so guests may consider bringing more than one member
of their organization.
The Traditional seminar track will include the CATS, CUPS, FRA, Insurance, Safety Training, and other seminars of that nature. The Events seminar track will include sessions on Basic Event Planning, Marketing, Gift Shop 101, Tents and Safety, Ticketing Systems, and Event Photography. The Shop seminar track will include a course on Locomotive 92-Day Inspections, Air Brake Recertification, STADCO Generator Preventative Maintenance (overview and in-depth), and Locomotive Air Brakes. Please note, the 92-Day Inspection Class will be three full days of course work and will preclude the participant from attending other seminars. Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate documenting their training.
Return your registration form by October 1, 2016 to obtain discounted registration. You are encouraged to register online.

We have changed the membership year start date from its current

Founded in 1982, the Railroad Passenger Car Alliance was created as a resource to owners and operators of privately owned railroad passenger equipment. The primary goal was to coordinate efforts for pooling their equipment for mainline steam excursions. The popularity of the organization quickly grew and today includes over 400 members.
As mainline steam excursions ceased, the organization changed the mission statement to include promoting the preservation and operation of historic railroad equipment, addressing the issues facing equipment owners and working with the nation's railroads and Amtrak to facilitate the operation and movement of member's passenger cars.
Today R.P.C.A. is a growing and forward thinking organization led by a Board of Directors who are railroad industry professionals, and are capable of thinking outside the box. Dedicated to preserving a unique and enjoyable mode of transportation, R.P.C.A. welcomes your membership and participation.
