One of America's Greatest Tourist trains is the Maine Eastern Railroad. It runs from Brunswick Maine to Rockland Maine. Soon, Amtrak will be extending north from Portland to Brunswick, where you can connect with Rockland. It will make for a great day trip!

We hope you enjoy this interview with Gordon Page from the railroad.

DINNER TRAIN in New Hampshire....The BEST ever!

Was RVing in New Hampshire and spotted a brochure for a dinner train. Found this place to be right off the interstate highway. Included some of the best food anywhere and certainly the best food ever on a tourist train. The owners even allow RVers to overnight in their lighted parking lot after their ride. We really enjoyed it and think you will to. ALLLLLLLLLLLL ABOARD!

Is this the Future AMTRAK power?

Noticed this new loco at the Worcester, Ma yard of the MBTA after this trainset had finished its day's work. Is this the future of AMTRAK power. It was made in Iowa, as one can read from the side of the train.

Note the exhaust that has marred the paint on the front of the train right above the windows. This train travels in both directions, so on the inbound runs to Boston, the engine is in the rear. The smoke does not rise high enough and it has smeared the paint. Is this a design flaw?
