The arrival of train service does more than just offer commuters and travelers alternatives to cars. The presence of passenger rail boosts economic activity in and around stations because trains find their way right in to existing neighborhoods and downtowns.

Join the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) for breakfast on March 12th from 7:30 – 9:00 AM at the Clarion Hotel in Portland, to learn how the Amtrak Downeaster has flourished and how it has impacted local economies and what the future may hold for Maine communities on or near passenger rail lines.
