News and features are streamed into channels to make the website easy to use and take readers straight to the content that is relevant to them. For up-to-the-minute reporting go to the news channel, or the specialist financial and policy channels. Railways and transit operators are served by five passenger channels - high-speed, main line, commuter rail, metros, light rail - plus a dedicated freight channel covering heavy-haul and general railfreight topics. Rolling stock specialists will find the locomotives and rolling stock channels highly relevant. There are four channels related to infrastructure and systems covering: track, signalling, telecoms, and fare collection. Click on regions for all the latest news from a particular part of the world with channels dedicated to North America, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Australia and New Zealand. All content is tagged for easy access through a powerful search function.

The new website also offers a wealth of useful information such as upcoming conferences and exhibitions, links to the key players in the industry, and information about IRJ products and services. Everything you need to know about the railway industry and IRJ is here in one location.

The launch of this new website is part of our strategy to keep people in the railway community worldwide as well informed as possible about the latest developments in what is arguably the most dynamic mode of transport. The website compliments the printed and online editions of IRJ together with Rail Group News, our five-times-a-week newsletter, and our growing presence on social media where you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Whichever way you choose to access IRJ's news service you can be certain that the content has been well researched and is of the highest quality.
