    2. Betty
    3. Hi again, I did a Google search for "Maine to Montreal" and found this newspaper article from earlier this year about it. I don't remember whether I've already mentioned the article. It offers a little history. http://www.boston.com/news/local/maine/articles/2010/02/22/railway_shutdown_looms_in_maine/ http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financialnews/D9FATT282.htm http://www.pbase.com/rparent/mma The Arlington, MA, Historical Society has a set of diaries from members of the WINN family, and the pages mention taking the train north. And a cousin of my gr-gr-gr-grandmother, Mrs. Eliza (CROSBY) HUTCHINSON, was Ruth CROSBY and she wrote 2 books about their summer home in Bethel, ME. There are stories in the books about them getting from Arlington, MA, to Bethel to vacation there. http://visitmaine.net/bethel.htm There are many web pages in a search for "Maine to Montreal." .. Have any of you taken a ride on Amtrak's Downeaster? We were considering taking the ride just for the adventure. http://www.amtrakdowneaster.com/ Betty (near Lowell, MA)
