Press Room

waynespirocucrTrainRiders/Northeast can provide quick, knowledgeable information on any story affecting passenger rail transportation in the Northeast.

Wayne Davis, Chairman of the Board, organized TrainRiders for the purpose of bringing Amtrak service back to Maine, New Hampshire and Northeastern Massachusetts. The result: the Downeaster, from Portland to Boston with stops in between.

When writing a story about passenger rail issues, Wayne should be one of your first contacts. He knows the history of Amtrak's return to New England and will marshal the facts for any writer. Click here for a higher resolution picture.
