Lula has begun looking at preliminary design plans to give its historic downtown train depot a much-needed face-lift City Manager Dennis Bergin said Wednesday he’s been talking with a couple of prospective design engineers to consider what changes and improvements can be made to the train depot property, which the city has agreed to purchase. The facility at Railroad Park features a red caboose donated to the city by Southern Railway in 1991. Beginning in the late 19th century, Southern Railway (now Norfolk Southern) owned or controlled several rail lines in the South, including North Georgia.
