1987 represents a year where things were improving, a bit, financially for the railroad. According to the Facts and Figures listed in the April issue, 1986 was a better year than 1985. Despite this, only two issues of the Maine Line were produced, while advertising a 'quarterly publication' on the cover. No explanation for this within the issues can be found.
