The September 2022 Rail Fan Convention has been canceled!
The September 2022 RailFan visit by CSXTHS to Eastern Kentucky has been canceled.
The historic flooding in Eastern Kentucky during the week of July 25 - 29 has made visiting the area impossible. Roads and bridges have been washed out. Roads are blocked by mud and rock slides, mountains have moved. The mine we were going to visit had its access road destroyed. Numerous mining communities were washed away. All motels in and near the area are filled with people who lost their homes or who are emergency responders.
