Vanishing Steam

Steam — the coffee vendor at the Westport railroad station — has brewed its last joe there.

The town of Westport made several attempts to help Steam stay open, says Foti Koskinas, deputy police chief who oversees railroad operations.

However, he says, the Saugatuck location is now vacant. The town is initiating eviction proceedings at Green’s Farms. Termination of the current lease will follow.

The Green’s Farms building will stay open though, with coffee and baked goods. It’s a different situation than at the Westport station — where there are restrooms on the other (westbound) side, and several coffee shops.

The town will advertise soon for a new vendor.

The Steam sign — shown here soon after it opened in January 2014 — is now gone.
