Fallen Tree Cancels Amtrak Downeaster Trains
Fallen trees in Wells have canceled 8 Amtrak Downeaster trains through late Monday afternoon.
Amtrak said they cancelled four trains in each direction because of the trees.
- Southbound trains 680, 682, 684 and 686
- Northbound trains 681, 683, 685 and 687
Ticketed passengers should contact Amtrak at 1-800-USA-RAIL to be re-accommodated on alternate trains or to request a refund.
The Downeaster runs from Boston's North Station with New Hampshire stops in Exeter, UNH, and Dover. The line continues into Maine, ending in Brunswick.
Wells has been hard hit by Monday's snowstorm, with most of the town's 10,000 Central Main Power customers without power as of noon. Chapel Road, Loop Road, Hiltons Lane, Locksley Lane, and Branch Road were all closed by multiple fallen trees and utility lines, according to Wells Police.
