July 16 - Houston-based Specialised Rail Transport (SRT) attended and exhibited at the 2010 RICA (Rail Industry Contractors Association Annual) Conference in Henderson, Nevada and enjoyed two special industry presentations from organisers.

RICA president Julie Holman presented SRT president Bob Felix with a special Corvette chair, which has already received rave reviews and plenty of use. Felix served two years as RICA vice president, and two years as president and since 2004 has served on the executive board. His term as chairman came to an end at the 2010 conference.

Holman also presented the President's Award to SRT vice president sales and marketing Kelli Collins for services to the RICA.

Meanwhile, SRT reports that, against a background of falling rail freight volumes, the company has seen bullish activity in the boiler market and in Q2 has moved a number of transformers.
