MEDOT owns the rest. Downeast Scenic leases the Brewer-Ellsworth section for excursion service (and will probably be allowed into downtown Bangor when their volunteers get done upgrading the rail inch by inch westward). To Calais is MEDOT-owned and railbanked, and mostly trailed. Although the state keeps throwing money at studying kooky restoration schemes.
