BANGOR — The head of the Federal Railroad Administration is coming to Maine to discuss a northern Maine railway that might be abandoned.

Federal railroad administrator Joe Szabo and other transportation officials will meet today in Bangor with U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, Gov. John Baldacci and other local and state officials and stakeholders regarding the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway.

The railway has filed notice that it intends to abandon 233 miles of track in northern Maine because it is losing millions of dollars a year on them.

Officials have pledged to develop a plan to keep the railway operating.
