Georgia's only running antique steam engine was just one of the services cut at the Georgia Agrirama.
But the community pulled together and raised enough money to get it rolling again.
Donations came from as far away as Germany.
"To date I think we've raised about six to seven thousand dollars, we have spent a good bit of that during the restoration process but we still have a bit of money in the kitty to keep her going for a while but we're still trying to raise additional monies," said Keith Rucker, Agrirama Foundation & S.O.S.
It costs about $200 per day to operate the train.
Volunteers made a lot of repairs and are training to learn how to run the train.
You can ride it this Saturday at the Agrirama pumpkin patch.
