Not Gone Entirely...

While the old Maine Central tracks running through downtown Augusta, ME appear to have been removed and taken over by city parking, I have been told they they actually still sit beneath the hard-pack surface, and that if they are needed in the future, they can be uncovered, and used by trains once again. While there is nothing really unique about the parking arrangement, I do find the deal with the city interesting, and am wondering if someday in the future, trains will once again run through downtown Augusta.
