Editorial

IRJ was launched in 1960 and started monthly publication in January 1961 as the world's first globally-distributed magazine for the railway industry. IRJ is written for senior managers and engineers of the world's railways and transit systems, ministers of transport, manufacturers, railway planners, and consultants.

IRJ is produced by a well-respected team of journalists and correspondents with an intimate working knowledge of the industry, and IRJ editors travel the world to bring our discerning readers the latest developments in rail transport. IRJ sets itself a high standard for quality editorial content and industry-leading design.

With our independent coverage, superior design, expert editorial team, and high-value readership, no other global railway magazine comes close to IRJ.
