Louisville Zoo officials hope to know by the end of the summer when three train rides will be back on track and carrying passengers.
Assistant zoo director Mark Zoeller says the tracks are in good shape and the zoo is now looking at what improvements need to be made to the track and trains to ensure safety.
The Kentucky Department of Agriculture fined the zoo $37,000 after the train flipped over June 1, 2009, injuring 22 of the 30 people on board the ride.
The train of open-air cars is pulled by a small engine and circles the zoo along a two-mile track. It was carrying about 30 passengers when three cars and the engine fell off the rails behind the gorilla exhibit.
