New Portland Train Station to be Studied

A new station on Commercial Street (where old tracks still exist) will be considered.  PressHerald:
The Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority expects to begin a study this spring of proposals to relocate the Portland train station, shorten trip lengths and add more daily runs between Brunswick, Portland and Boston and others.
...Quinn said relocating the station might shorten trip times, especially for runs between Portland and Brunswick when that service is launched in autumn 2012.
