PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A movement is afoot to move the train station in Maine’s largest city and add more trips to Boston.

Maine Public reports state officials said Monday it would be ideal to place a new station along St. John Street in Portland.

Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority officials also said the authority has started considering expanding Downeaster train service to Boston by late May.
