For some additional context here is a listing of discontinuance actions taken by Maine Central (and others) from 1954 to 1959.

This is an exceptionally useful period to consider as MEC abandoned all of the major branch line passenger service during this period. Branches abandoned by MEC were Rumford (1955), Farmington (1957), Rockland (1959), Calais (1957) and St. Johnsbury (1958).
