Quick Note: Train Host Program

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.

Click on "Host Program" in the above menu for more information.

Welcome to the Help Section of the TrainRiders/Northeast website.

If you are a Train Host registering for the first time, go here for instructions.

As a casual user, you can read the articles, take a poll or, even better yet, join our organization. Registering will allow you to comment on the articles, though the webmaster will have to review it before it is published. Comments by TRN members will be instantly published.
