Our New Vision

Our continued success depends on your donation. Use our PayPal button to help us reach this goal. Many thanks for your continued support. Wayne Davis, Chairman

"This is a 143-mile long community that the Downeaster knits together," said NNEPRA Executive Director Patricia Quinn at this year's Ambassador's Appreciation Luncheon in Portland.

More than one hundred station volunteers, train hosts (A program of TrainRiders/NE) and municipal officials accepted NNEPRA's invitation to celebrate their participation in supporting "America's Favorite Train." Where else can folks from three separate states work as one?
