PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Amtrak Downeaster train service from Brunswick, Maine, to Boston is canceled due to snow removal.

Amtrak says the rail service is suspended all day on Tuesday because railroad tracks are shut down for snow removal. The train normally runs daily roundtrip service from Portland to Boston, with two extended trips to Freeport and Brunswick.

Other transportation service in the state is returning to normal. Portland International Jetport reports scattered delayed flights, but most are on time. Bangor International Airport reports a normal schedule. Maine Department of Transportation spokesman Ted Talbot says state roads and “in very good shape” and the state removed speed limit reductions at midmorning.

The snow has hit Maine hard, with the Portland area getting about 74 inches this season.
