recover windows print queue

I was working in a campus network and called about the print queue deleted.
A print queue has been accidentally deleted from windows 2003 print cluster.
how could this be recovered. is it possible to recover it using print management?

if the print queue is deleted would the port name be deleted too?
if I can find the port name I will be able to recreate the queue, but how can you tell which port name belong to which queue name, when the queue name is no longer there?

as a note the printer is no listed in Active Directory.

Appreciate it

<<PCs should still show the printer, even if it has been deleted from the server. That will tell you the queue name.>>

would they be able to print to it? as long as the port has not been deleted ?
