Tower KT - Kenton Tower

Kenton Tower (KT) controls movements at Kenton Yard, a small fright yard; and Kenton Passenger Station, seen in the background. Kenton is the only stop for the Amtrak Downeaster on the layout, and Cape Ann's passenger traffic transfers at Kenton for points served by Amtrak. 

Cape Ann's passenger system is not a part of Amtrak. Being entirely an intrastate system (operating only within the State of Maine) it opted out of joining Amtrak in 1971.
