I stumbled upon this article today, it's dated from June 8, 2021.
It appears the Maine state senate, voted to approve the funding to study passenger rail between Portland & Lewiston and Portland & Bangor (via Augusta). The article didn't really go into detail if the study was for a separate commuter rail authority or if Lewiston/Bangor would be an extension of the Downeaster. I know technically Lewiston is already on the expansion list for the Downeaster but to what degree of frequency? The Augusta route is interesting considering there's a push to turn the line into a rail trail
The Maine Senate voted unanimously Monday for two bills that would fund studies of expanded passenger rail to Lewiston, Augusta, Waterville and Bangor.
