A South Georgia rail road will soon be getting some much needed repairs.

The Nashville Line is a railroad running from Valdosta to Willacoochee, through Nashville, Georgia.

It's pretty well worn down from flood damage and general wear over time. But repairs will soon begin with funds earmarked by the Georgia Department of Transportation.

"Right now it is acceptable track, which means it is the bottom of the barrel. But with the money, with new plates, bars, some new rail and some kinks fixed, the rail will be upgraded," said Chris Parrott, Co-CEO of CaterParrott Railnet.

The trains on these rails deliver massive amounts of freight that's crucial to the South Georgia economy.
