News Tech: AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Advocates for passenger rail service between Auburn and Portland presented their proposal to a Maine Department of Transportation advisory panel on Thursday, a plan that comes against a backdrop of rail expansion nationwide.

The Maine Rail Transit Coalition has proposed using an electric-powered train using the existing rails for the “Grand Trunk Flyer.”

The route to be considered by the Portland to Auburn Rail Use Advisory Council would follow a 24-mile section of the idled St. Lawrence & Atlantic line, which extends north from Portland to Montreal.

The proposed path holds the potential for new or renovated train stations at Ocean Gateway and the planned Roux Institute in Portland, along with Falmouth, Yarmouth, New Gloucester and the Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport, supporters said. It’s separate from a proposal to connect Portland and Bangor.
