    DURHAM, N.H. - Amtrak says ridership was up in two of its three northern New England routes in the last fiscal year.

    Amtrak said Monday that ridership increased 3.5 percent on the Downeaster, which travels from Boston to Maine and includes stops in New Hampshire. Ticket revenue grew 6 percent during the year.

    The Vermonter service from St. Albans to Washington, D.C., also saw an increase in ridership and sales, with ridership going up 2.5 percent and sales going up just under 6 percent.

    Ridership declined for the Ethan Allen service to and from Rutland, Vt., by 2 percent, but ticket sales only dropped a tenth of a percent.

    Nationwide, Amtrak carried a record 31.6 million passengers in fiscal year 2013.
