"Cover Story" piece on the most recent date provided by the Northern New England
"Cover Story" piece on the most recent date provided by the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority (NNEPRA) for Amtrak's inaugural run between Boston's North Station and a station at Thompson's Point in Portland. The NNEPRA says it will take place on May 1, 2001. But train officials have set deadlines before, first in 1993, then in 1995, 1998, 1999, and finally 2000, and still there is no train. Except for Boston and Haverhill, none of the cities where the train will stop, including Exeter, Durham, Dover, Wells, Biddeford-Saco, Old Orchard Beach and Portland have built platforms, because they must first hammer out a lease agreement with Guilford Rail Systems, which owns the tracks.
