DOTX 218 Survey Conducted on Pan Am Railways

This report summarizes the results from a May 12, 2014, survey conducted with the Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA's) gage restraint measurement system (GRMS) vehicle, DOTX 218, on the Pan Am Railways (PAR) track between Portland, ME, and Brunswick, ME. The survey was designed to capture the post-construction condition of the newly upgraded track, including its gage restraint capabilities and track geometry characteristics, to facilitate the comprehensive evaluation of the implemented enhancements to the PAR track under the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority’s (NNEPRA's) Downeaster-Portland North project.
