About this title:

Synopsis: "This study in the subject of transportation endeavors to set forth when, how, and why railroad combination took place in New England during the nineteenth century. In writing it I have had three purposes: to organize and present a chronicle of events of economic and historical interest to form a historical background for the consideration of present-day problems of railroad combinations in New England; and to present material which may lead to further knowledge of the forces behind the economic institution of railroad combination." - from the foreword. Contents; 1. The Boston & Albany System; 2. The Old Colony System; 3. The New York & New England System; 4. The New York, New Haven & Hartford System (with a Note on the Central New England Railway); 5. The Boston & Lowell System; 6.
