Archive -- TrainRiders Northeast Annual Meeting
Holiday Inn By The Bay 88 Spring Street Portland ME 04101
Our Annual Meetings are a time when we catch up on the progress of the Downeaster, receive the all-important yearly performance report and future expansion plans from NNEPRA Executive Director Patricia Quinn and renew our professional and personal friendships. We'll also welcome NNEPRA Board Chairman John Melrose, MEDOT Commissioner David Bernhardt, President David Fink of PanAm Railroad and top Amtrak officials.
This Annual Meeting promises to be a 'must attend' event.
It is a luncheon gathering at the Holiday Inn By The Bay in Portland on Friday, December 15th from noon until 3:30 pm. Registration begins at 11:00 am.
The Downeaster schedule makes it easy to arrive and depart Portland.
The northbound train arrives at 11:35 am and the southbound train arrives at 11:55 am. A courtesy shuttle will take you from the station to the hotel.
Adjournment is at 3:30 pm. We'll then board the Downeaster (on us) for a roundtrip to Freeport (arrives at 4:10 pm) to see L.L. Bean's spectacular Christmas display and program. Afterwards, we'll board the 5:25 pm in Freeport to Portland and you can continue on to points south on the same train.
