SMRFest 2000 was produced and directed by Bill Cox. The event occured the weekend of September 15-17, 2000. The location was the Ramada Inn on Odd Fellows Road, located just off the Lynchburg Expressway (Rt. 29) and overlooking Norfolk Southern's Kinney Yard (the former N&W Yard). Clinics were presented by Larry Puckett, Bob Harpe, Bill Mosteller, George Riley and Kevin Goodman. A number of layouts were available for visiting on Saturday.
