A non-profit group working to enhance rail service in Maine and New England



Updated: 10/27/2018


Our next Board Meeting will be November 14th at the Augusta City Hall: 6-8 PM.

Membership renewal is coming up next month. A renewal for will be mailed (as in the past) with the NOV/DEC Newsletter. The $25.00 fee has not changed. We welcome continuing members and new members alike. There is also a membership form obtainable from the "About Us" page on this website.

Our 2018 New England Rail maps (rolled, folded or laminated) are available, as is 1910 version of the same New England area. They are all now available for mail purchasing. The order form is a .pdf form on our GET INVOLVED page. Even though the 1910 map is not on our order list, it is available only as a rolled paper map. The price is the same as our 2018 rolled paper map. To request one, simply write it plainly on the order form and enclose a check for the amount ordered. Another historical map available from us is a 1904 Railroad Commisioner's Map of Maine' railroads. It's size is slightly larger than the other maps. The price is the same as a rolled paper map and ordering one would be the same methode as the 1910 map.

Members and non-members alike, can assist with our program by promoting train ridership (AMTRAK and Commuter) to the rest of the public.

We encourage riding the DownEaster to points south and return, and for those to the South of us, come up to visit Portland, Freeport, Brunswick, and other Maine sites. It not only actually helps to reduce emissions to the atmosphere, but also helps to reduce traffic on our highways. It is also much less personal stress for the trip, and the cost is comparable, or even less than other means, depending on parking and final destination in Boston. Free Wi-Fi is always available. If you have not ridden the train - "Try it, you might even like it!"

AN IMPORTANT STATEMENT FROM MRG,Inc. and OPERATION LIFESAVER - "Any time you cross a railroad track, LOOK BOTH WAYS, before crossing!  You never know: If you don't look, it might be the last thing you don't do!*BE SAFE*"

A Huge "THANK YOU" to our military members and their families."
