Global Conference Panel Features Railinc Analyst

The North American railcar fleet grew by about 27,000 cars through July 2018, adding about 11,000 covered hoppers and 5,000 tank cars. Those were among the takeaways from a recent Railcar and Locomotive Outlook and Overview panel featuring Railinc Sr. Data Scientist Dr. David Humphrey and others at Cowen and Company’s 11th Global Transportation Conference.

The entire panel session is available below and here.

Each year, Humphrey uses Umler data to create demographic profiles of the railcar and locomotive fleets and presents the information at the Rail Equipment Finance Conference in La Quinta, Calif. Companion reports on the railcar and locomotive fleets are available to download for free on the Railinc Research Reports page.
