Mission Statement: 37 Years Serving The Rail Industry


Over the last thirty-six years, Rail Equipment Finance has established itself as the premier industry meeting addressing issues relating to the North American railcar and locomotive fleets. REF provides the most current information on fleet demographics as well as proven accurate predictions for the future. This data is presented in a concise format by the top experts in the field and is paired with information on the leasing and finance industries that support these fleets. Our attendees receive not only the experience of REF, but presenters’ statistics, diagrams, and presentations on a 4GB Flashdrive.

For 2023 and beyond, Rail Equipment Finance will continue with this proven format, providing information vital to our industry as well as world class networking opportunities for our attendees. It will be done at a cost, subsidized by our Sponsors and Industry Partners, that represents significant value for our attendees and their companies.
