The City of Monroe, Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo, and Zoological Society showed off a new train engine today at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo. A train fundraiser has been ongoing to purchase a train, rebuild tracks and the train station. 

The Monroe - West Monroe Convention and visitors bureau today presented a $150,000 grant to help with the cost on the engine and coaches.
