SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD

National Grain Car Council

The National Grain Car Council was founded by the former Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) in 1994, and is made up of a balanced representation of executives knowledgeable in the transportation of grain, including members from the Class I railroads (the nation’s largest) representing marketing and management; representatives from the Class II and Class III railroads; members representing grain shippers and receivers; and members representing private rail car owners and rail car manufacturers.  The Council holds meetings at least once a year that allow the members to discuss openly issues affecting the grain transportation industry.  For questions about the Council, please contact Michael Small by phone at (202) 245-0381 or by e-mail at michael.small@stb.gov.
