signalTrainRiders/NE Train Hosts serve as goodwill ambassadors onboard the Downeaster to assist passengers with information; assist train crews in duties as requested by them; and promote rail safety.

As a volunteer, you'll travel between Maine and Boston conversing with passengers along the way.

A period of public comment, underway now and concluding on October 13th, will include an open hearing at the Brunswick Council Chambers from 5:30p - 7:30p on September 26, 2013.

This is a significant milestone. TrainRiders encourages its members and friends to attend this important hearing on the 26th so that supporters of the facility can have their voices heard. Those unable to attend can provide written comments to NNEPRA.
