Soon there will be more options for those who take the Amtrack Downeaster between Brunswick and Boston. According to the Portland Press Herald, the expansion project is near completion, which will increase the number of daily round trip runs from three to five. All that's left for them to finish is a siding project in Yarmouth. Once that's out of the way, the new schedule will begin.

Even though I've been living in Maine for over three years, I've never taken the Downeaster before! I definitely need to get it on my "Maine Bucket List." And now that the service is expanding, I'll have no excuses!
