CSX is laying off at least 180 people and closing its Corbin maintenance facility.
Rumors have abounded in recent days about possible layoffs at the facility and closing of some operations at the Corbin yard.
“They just walked in this morning and shut the doors,” said one source close to CSX.
The lost jobs represent about 50 percent of total employment at the Corbin facility.
CSX officials confirmed the layoffs and closings later Tuesday.
