PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A popular Portland train museum will remain on the city’s waterfront through 2017 after announcing a lease extension with its landlord.

The owners of 58 Fore St. in Portland say The Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum and its Polar Express attraction will stay in the city for the near future.

The museum recently announced plans to move some of its operations to Gray.

CPB2 LLC purchased the Fore Street property last year. CPB2 manager James Brady says the company is still moving forward with “plans to re-develop our property into a dynamic, integral part of the Portland waterfront.”

Museum Executive Director Donnell Carroll says the extension fits the museum’s timeline for its relocation to Gray by summer 2017.
