MRG, Inc. (Maine Rail Group) is a non-profit, all-volunteer, unaffiliated, 501C-3 organization formed in 1988 and dedicated to enhancing rail services in Maine and New England through education, advocacy, and historical appreciation. Their interests include support for realistic opportunities to expand freight and passenger services in connection with related modes of transportation. They take a special interest in opportunities to utilize Maine’s state-owned railroads to their fullest advantage and to restore idle lines for productive rail service.
Their educational outreach includes our annually updated railroad maps of New England, also used as a fundraiser, showing the interconnectivity of regional railroads and their current status as to operators and activity. With the completion, during 2008, of MRG's project to restore three former Norfolk and Western passenger cars, proceeds from the map project and monetary gifts can now be focused on map updates and their educational and advocacy interests.
One method of supporting MRG, Inc’s goals is the purchase of their popular Railroad map of New England’s operating railroads, updated bi-annually, showing the interconnectivity of New England’s rail lines and their current status as to operators and activity. Also included are locations of several museums and small operational lines.
