About 2,600 people lined up at a Lexington job fair to apply for about 100 well paying but temporary railroad jobs.

The R.J. Corman Railroad Group originally said applications for the $25 to $35 an hour jobs would go to the first 500 people at the Saturday fair.

...

Twenty-nine-year-old Keith Russell was first in line and had been waiting since 2 p.m. Friday.

...

The jobs are part of a $17.5 million federal grant awarded to Corman last month to improve short line railroads in Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia.
