The Seaton Tramway in Devon has reopened today.
It's been closed since being damaged by storms in February. Work has now been completed to reinstall large sections of the tracks which had been washed away.
Duncan Sleightholme went along to see how preparations for the reopening were going:
The Seaton Tramway will reopen tomorrow. It has been closed since being damaged by storms in February.
Work has now been completed to reinstall large sections of the track foundations which had been washed away.
The tramway attracts more than 90,000 visitors every year.
The bad weather has hit our tourism industry too. This week Network Rail announced repairs to the Dawlish line won't be finished until mid April.
And other areas have also been struggling, including Seaton, where the the town's famous tramway has been forced out of action because of storm damage.
Today an operation took place to get the attraction back on track.
