WASHINGTON — Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao delivers the oath of office to Ronald L. Batory, the new head of the Federal Railroad Administration. Batory is the first FRA administrator with hands-on railroad experience since Joe Szabo, President Barack Obama’s nominee, left office in 2014.

The ceremony Feb. 28 was attended by some 100 friends, family, railroad executives, and government officials.
