The Portland Planning Board, in approving the request by the Maine Narrow Gauge
The Portland Planning Board, in approving the request by the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum to lay tracks around the base of the Eastern Promenade between India Street and Fish Point, attached conditions that limit the width of the ties to 5 feet. The Maine Department of Transportation wants the ties to be 8 feet, in case commercial rail service ever returns there. The board also stipulated that the museum must pay the cost of making the railroad crossings passable, which goes against state policy that requires parties crossing a rail corridor to pay for the crossing. Details.
