System map from Maine Eastern website

The Maine Eastern Railroad is currently the tourist passenger division of the Morristown & Erie Railroad serving the lower eastern coast of Maine. Acquired by the M&E in 2003, the line runs from Brunswick and Rockland and operates seasonal passenger service using, among other power, two EMD FL-9 locomotives. The Geep pictured below, whose lineage traces back through Amtrak to the Union Pacific, has been photographed by railfans in winter snowplow service.
