January, 2023- Exciting progress is being made on the Wells Area Improvement Project. The CSX Rail Train arrived at CPF 228 on January 5th, carrying 115lb continuously welded rail that will become a two-mile siding extension between Wells, Maine and North Berwick, Maine. What does this mean for the future of Amtrak Downeaster? Once the project is complete, these elements will improve reliability and schedule flexibility of both the Amtrak Downeaster and freight trains and will eventually support the addition of a 6th daily Downeaster round-trip between Wells and Brunswick, Maine.
