PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Amtrak's Downeaster is back on a regular schedule following a month of train cancellations caused by track maintenance.

The Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority announced it's running a full schedule effective Friday, now that the maintenance and repairs are complete.

Executive Director Patricia Quinn says Pan Am Railways, which owns the track between Brunswick and the Massachusetts border, had to replace 2,000 rail ties.

The passenger rail service runs from Brunswick, Maine, to Boston.
