Hundreds Gather for Brunswick’s Amtrak Downeaster Platform Ribbon-Cutting Archives


Hundreds of people crowded around the newly completed train platform at Brunswick Station Monday for a ceremony that started with the arrival of a train carrying transportation officials ready to give speeches and ended with a ribbon-cutting. A similar ceremony was held earlier that morning down the line in Freeport. The two communities have not had passenger rail service since 1959. The platforms will serve Amtrak’s Downeaster when service is extended to the towns this fall. Watch WCSH news coverage. Photos by Michele Stapleton.
