Wayne Davis, head of TrainRiders Northeast, a group that advocated for the return of passenger rail service, says he is disappointed that the agreement reached by the parties bringing Portland-to-Boston passenger rail service to Maine limits speeds to 59 mph. Colin Pease of Guilford Transportation, owner of the lines on which the Amtrak trains will run, says the impact of trains traveling at 79 mph increases geometrically. The state has agreed to upgrade the tracks to operate trains at 59 mph, but said it has not lost sight of the need for higher speeds. With related editorial.
