Serving northern Maine, the Bangor and Aroostook was probably best known for their brightly coloured red, white and blue boxcars. In 1938 their flagship train was the "Aroostook Flyer" (train #4 / #7), which boasted a Lounge Buffet Car and De Luxe Coaches from Bangor, Maine to Van Buren, Maine. The schedule lists connections at Bangor for Portland and Boston.
