The friends of L-and-N Depot announced state funding for the depot early Saturday morning in Bowling green.
The Depot will receive 75,000 dollars from the Kentucky General Assembly to purchase an engine that they will put on display.
Dorian Walker with "friends of the l-and-n depot" says the recent improvments to the depot could not have been done without the help of volunteers in the community.
The engine is currently in Evansville being refurbished. Dorain Walker says they expect to have it in Bowling Green by next year.
