Meridian city leaders have postponed the annual Union Station Railfest, possibly until the week of the Jimmie Rodgers Memorial Festival.
The Meridian Parks and Recreation Department along with the Railroad Museum Advisory Board decided to delay the event because Amtrak, Norfolk Southern and other companies were unable to provide displays. The event was set for Saturday.
Organizers have set May 10 through 12 as the tentative dates for next year's Jimmie Rodgers Memorial Festival
Naylor said that the Union Station Railroad Museum is close to opening and is in the planning stages of exhibits and storylines. Key artifacts that people might have and would like to see as a part of this museum are needed at this time.
Anyone who has railroad-related items they would like to donate to the museum or if they would like to be added to the mailing list of arts and crafts and flea market vendors for the spring festival, they can call the parks and recreation office at 485-1802.
