The once dilapidated train station in Jesup, GA has been restored and recently received the Georgia Trust "Excellence in Rehabilitation" Award. After a fire in 2003, the station was abandoned with its roof caved in and interior gutted. The City of Jesup received over $800,000 in Federal funds to restore the station. As one of only five Amtak stops in Georgia, the station is looking fine now. Jesup is also a favorite for rail fans with a covered platform for train viewing. This is a good example of a local government working to restore viable train stations to enhance the community.
