Pandemic Leads to More Railfan Event Cancellations

The Marion Railfan Society has announced that it has canceled all meetings and slideshows for the remainder of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a notice posted on Facebook, the group said this also includes its annual train show scheduled for Dec. 5.

The Marion group had planned to meet on Oct. 17 to have its annual tower night slide show, but that event was canceled shortly before it could be due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Ohio generally and in Marion County specifically.

Also canceled due to the pandemic is the Dayton Train Show, which had been scheduled to be held Nov. 7 and 8.

The show committee said it will instead focus on planning a show for Nov. 6- , 7, 2021.

Another Dayton area railfan group, the Miami Valley Railfans, had announced earlier that it was cancelling all activities for the remainder of 2020.
