On September 26 and 27, 2022, Executive Board Members Mr. Nick Baker and Mr. Ricky Coleman performed an internal audit of the American Rail System Federation as prescribed in the bylaws. See their statement below:

“On September 26th and 27th we traveled to the federation office in Cattletsburg, KY to review the financial statements and assets in the capacity of a trustee per the bylaws. During this time, we saw that the obligated funds were received from all former federations for our initial startup. Credit card statements and investments seem to be in good standings. The expenditures fall in line with federal regulations and entitlements. Future actions will include the sale of the Knoxville office to recoup that money and save on the monthly costs associated with its up keep.”
