Rail line advocates ask Mainers to look at the Conway Scenic Railroad Caroline Cornish, Reporter NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (NEWS CENTER) -- People who are hoping that trains will someday run again along the Mountain Division rail line through Maine tried to give people a glimpse of their vision Friday. The line once ran from Portland to St. Johnsbury, Vermont. New Hampshire now runs the Conway Scenic Railroad on some of its portion of the line. The Route 113 Corridor Committee, which is pushing for Maine to restore the tracks that once ran from Portland to Fryeburg, says New Hampshire has been able to use the line to enhance tourism and economic development. Members believe Maine can do the same thing, bringing jobs to the western part of the state. $4 million of the transportation bond that Mainers passed in June is dedicated to starting work on the rail line from Portland to Windham. Supporters say they'll need another $15 million to complete the project. The state does now own the entire rail corridor between Portland and Fryeburg.
