Finger Lakes Chapter presents "Laser Rail Cleaning" by Mark Woodward, Asst. Director, Metro North Railroad

This presentation will discuss rail track cleaning using a truck mounted laser instead of using water to remove the pectin left by crushed leaves on the rail head, reducing the slip slide and subsequent flat spots that can occur during low adhesion.

This chapter meeting will be virtual (zoom) and in-person at L3Harris Technologies in Rochester, NY (1680 University Avenue, Rochester NY, 14610) for US persons.

There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required. To register, send an email to and state if you will attend in-person at L3Harris.
For those virtual attendees: The zoom link will be sent out a few days before the meeting.
For in-person attendees (L3Harris): Further instructions will be sent out before the meeting.
