Appointed Officers     

 

 

 

 

   

    Burt Hermey - Vice President

    714-751-2032 - EMAIL


I have been a owner of private railcars since 1985, when he purchased Silver Lariat from Amtrak along with his partner. Their company, California Zephyr Railcar Charters was founded in 1989 to operate Silver Lariat on charters and tours.


In 1992 the Southern Pacific Railroad chartered Silver Lariat for a customer hospitality event in San Diego. That began a long-lasting relationship where Silver Lariat was used for numerous functions carrying top executives and valued customers all over both the SP and later UP systems.


CZRC acquired its second car, Silver Rapids, in 2000, and has operated its third car, Silver Solarium, under lease since 2007. In 2012 we acquired our fourth car, Silver Peak.


Our cars operate well over 50,000 miles annually, sometimes singly, but often in pairs or trios, almost always on Amtrak trains. In 2011 Burt worked with a music promoter to assemble and operate the “Railroad Revival Tour” special train of 14 cars, which took three bands on a seven-day tour from Oakland to New Orleans, with stops for six concerts. The tour was documented in the music video “Big Easy Express”, which won a Grammy Award in 2013.


California Zephyr Railcar Charters joined RPCA in 1999, and Burt has attended every annual Conference since then.


Along with our recently retired Membership Chairs Courtney and Elaine Shenkle, Burt converted and modernized the RPCA membership database, and as part of his duties as Vice President oversees the mailing of membership renewal invoices.

     636-441-4313 - EMAIL

     I am honored to be only be the second Treasurer in RPCA history.

 

In 1993 was the first RPCA Conference in St. Louis. I was asked to assist with the registration, and ended up joining the Alliance. Since then, I have attended most of the Annual Conferences - I know I missed 1998 in Albany and 2008 in Duluth, but I think I made all the others. RPCA again came to St. Louis in 2004. I handled ticketing and registration, bus logistics for the Spouse tour and visits to UP3985, setup of the Hospitality Room, and myriad other functions. I have frequently assisted with the ballot counting for the annual election, and with the silent auction.

 

Professionally, I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science and another in Engineering Management. I work full time as the Computer Systems Manager for the Mainframe Legacy System for Apex Oil Company in St. Louis, MO.
