The Railroad Passenger Car Numbering Bureau (RPCNB) established in 2002 is a wholly owned subsidiary of Railroad Passenger Car Alliance, and provides member services for that organization.

RPCNB provides car and locomotive Umler services for the RPCA members under the RPCNB assigned reporting mark. RPCNB provides services to our member shops to upload inspections, such as air date and loco inspections through the RPCNB assigned shop code.

Another service offered is movement assistance. If you do not know how to move your car or just would like someone else to handle a movement, RPCNB through one of our member companies can assist you! The member company will charge you for this service!

Dan and Pamm Monaghan of Great Lakes Railcar currently run the day to day operations. Both may be reached by using the contact page.

Subscribers must be a current RPCA member in good standing to use this service. Our Subscription year runs from July 1 to June 30th. Subscription for your equipment must be renewed annually.
