Industry Reference Files Overview

Railinc maintains the only industry-accepted version of the North American railroad industry's official code tables. Industry Reference Files (IRFs) are the spell checkers, data dictionaries and thesaurus for all intra- and inter-industry communication and are used to ensure consistency in data interpretation.

The links to the left take you to specific product pages for each IRF and give you a full product description and any appropriate links for that IRF.

The links below take you to directly to supporting resources pages for an IRF such as a public SharePoint community site or other files maintained outside of the Railinc.com website.

Learn more about IRFs in this IRF Overview. Free look-ups for some IRFs are available on the Freight Rail 411 website.
