You might not think about freight rail's impact on your daily life, but it touches you in many surprising ways. From the food on your table and the clothes in your closet to the hottest electronic gadgets and new cars, freight railroads deliver just about everything you eat, wear and use every single day. Trains even play a role in getting you to work on time through collaborations with commuter rail systems like Chicago’s Metra. Thanks to railroads spending billions each year in technology and infrastructure, goods move from the factory floor to you as efficiently as possible.
