2017Memories...TrainRiders/NE Chairman Wayne Davis looks back on 
the Downeaster's Year-of-Success. Yes, it was a very good year!
Go here.

 

DE ConductorNNEPRA has decided to modify the Downeaster's schedule, beginning on March 30th, in an effort to, among other things, improve the service's on-time performance.

Freeport and Brunswick are expected to benefit by the change as the time between daytime arrivals and early evening departures is cut nearly in half.

The second evening train out of Boston (#687) will depart at 6:05 p.m. instead of 5:40 p.m. Overall, good moves. http://www.pressherald.com/2015/03/16/amtrak-tweaks-downeastser-schedule-to-give-more-time/
