About Us

Welcome to the new TRC. Thanks to the generosity of some of our members, we are able to continue bringing you the best railroad videos on the Internet!

The Rail Channel was created in August, 2009 to showcase the best railroad videos online. Our programming comes from various producers from around the world and some of it we produce ourselves. For the past five years, TRC has been a free website, run by a single volunteer. The limited advertising on the site only paid for the server fees but not the office space or electric bill. After the loss of a major portion of our revenue when our original video hosting provider changed their business model, we decided that the best way to keep the videos rolling was to ask for a low monthly subscription fee. It also seemed like a good idea to build more features into the website. Today, TRC still has some free videos, but if you are not a subscriber you are missing out on most of what we have to offer. Our new features include the Daily Video (posted every weekday), Weekend Extra (on Saturdays) and our brand new TRC News Feed, giving you the latest rail industry news from around the globe, updated every hour.
This is all made possible by your monthly subscription, so please subscribe to gain access to all that TRC has to offer. Become a Premium Member today and don’t miss out on all these new features!
