Program Notes

This engaging composition, conveying a sense of forward motion and a steady pace, depicts the sound and imagery of a train ride. The Atlantic was a passenger train that served both U.S. and Canadian territory. The train and its predecessor, The Atlantic Limited, provided the only passenger rail service in the state of Maine from the late 1960s to 1994. The Atlantic also holds a unique distinction in U.S. railroading history as it operated the last regular‐service steam‐heated passenger train in the United States until it was converted to electric power in 1993.
