If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, you can start your quest by visiting the new frontier of learning and high speed rail via interactive eLearning at the High Speed Rail Learning System (HSRLS). Simply go to


for more information and to register. Registration is FREE and simple and the site is open to anybody with interest whether a beginning student, rail enthusiast, teacher/instructor, government stakeholder, or industry member expanding your current knowledge base.

HSRLS currently includes a four-module interactive “HSR 101- An Introduction to High Speed Rail” course that can be studied individually at your own pace and we will be adding more HSR materials developed by external experts as the summer moves along. There are also video recordings of two HSR workforce development related workshops available at the site: “HSR Workforce Development at the State Departments of Transportation” and “High Speed Rail Workforce Symposium”.

The HSRLS has been made possible by a grant from the Federal Railroad Administration. Please contact us with further questions or comments (ptlautal@mtu.edu) Or visit http://www.rail-learning.mtu.edu/
