It was a beautiful day in Wells, Maine, on October 22, 2018. I was in a pretty bad mood because my trusty Honda Accord had decided to periodically not start and at this point was sitting in the station parking lot awaiting AAA. After that and the musings of Amtrak management I welcomed the chance to grab some shots of the Downeaster at work.

First, there was the cheerful station, bedecked with Halloween decor.

 

Then Northbound #683, in a canopy of fall colors way down the line, spot on time at 2:53.

 

Then Southbound #686 on time at 2:59. All went like clockwork. The trains were gleaming and clean in appearance. Further good news is that PanAm work on the tracks is due to be over as I write this and two more round trips will be added.

Oh, as for the Honda, it spent two days in a Honda service center in New Hampshire, where nobody could figure out why we have starting problems. That will have to be done down where I live in Massachustts....where compared to the Downeaster our commuter rail trains border on being a practical joke....dirty windows, track changes that leave passengers isolated, and new apps that won't download. And now winter is coming. lol.
