Big News

We have changed the membership year start date from its current January 1-> December 31, to July 1 -> June 30.

This step was taken to allow the Annual Conference to fall in the middle of the membership year.

So automaticly you get 6 Free months of membership. Renewal notices will no longer be sent each November - they will now be arriving in April or early May of each year, beginning with 2015.



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.
