THE SPRAGUE-6ENERAL 
ELECTRIC SYSTEM 

of MULTIPLE UNIT CONTROL 
for ELECTRIC TRAINS 

Challenges comparison with other systems on the following points : 

1. The Sprague-General Electric System is neither in an experi- 
mental nor an untried stage, but is to-day in satisfactory operation 
on 1,162 cars running on twenty-three roads in the United States, 
Great Britain, France, Germany and Italy. 

2. Contracts for additional Sprague-General Electric Control 
equipments are now being filled which will bring up the total num- 
ber of cars to 2,243 and the number of roads to forty. A list of 
these roads will be sent on application. 

3. The Sprague-General Electric System of Control is entirely 
independent of the brake system, so that should the air brakes 
fail, the train could still be started, stopped or reversed by the motor- 
man. 

4. The Control apparatus of the Sprague-General Electric System, 
is operated direct by line current without the intervention of storage 
batteries working a more or less complicated system of electro-pneu- 
matic valves. As long as there is power to move the train, the same 
power will operate the Sprague-General Electric System of Control. 

5. The Sprague-General Electric System of Train Control is the 
fruit of eleven years of unrivalled experience in the manufacture of 
controllers for over 50,000 cars operating on over 25,000 miles of 
road in all parts of the world.

NOTE. In the above classification those roads whose statements are grouped under the head of Class 1 
comprise all lines that may be designated "common carrier railroads" in the full sense of the expression; 



prises with which they are connected; and Class 6 includes roads not fully brought into operation, and 
those whose operations are not fully reported. Class 4 is omitted because the traffic operations of these 
switching and transfer railroad.* is merely a duplication of figures contained in Class 1; omitting these 
trans|>ortation statistics necessarily causes the omission of all returns responsive thereto.

NOTE. The mileage operated in 1897-1902, as above, is exclusive of switching railroads, which in 
1897 were 741.37 miles, in 1898, 338.85 miles, in 1899, 310.61 miles, in 1900, 350.72 miles, in 1901, 462.28 
miles, and in 1902, 448.88 miles; these roads not reporting details of passenger traffic or earnings, as also 
the mileage of railroads doing a freight business exclusively. (See class 3 in table on p. iii.) For the same 
reason the mileage of switching railroads is omitted from the group tables following.

The Boston and Maine RR. owns and operates an electric branch over the principal 
streets of Portsmouth, N. H., and through the towns of Rye and North Hampton to Rye

A statement of operations and Income for the seren fiscal years ending June 30, 1895 to 1901, 
inclusive, is In the MANUAL for 1902, on page 8. A change iu the method of distributing the items 
of earnings, etc., Introduced in the report for the year ending June 30, 1902, makes a true com- 
parison with the years previous to 1901 Impossible. For this reason, and because of the fact that 
the statistics of the Fitchburg RR. are Included in the reports for the last two fiscal years only, 
it has been decided to discontinue the publication of the statistics for years previous to 1901.

HISTORY. The Concord and Montreal RR. Is & 



consolidation, Sept. 19, 1889, of the Boston, Con- 
cord and Montreal RR. and the Concord RR. Cor- 
poration. The constituent companies retain a 
nominal corporate existence so as not to Impair 
the validity of certain leases and contracts which 
cannot legally pass to the consolidated corpora- 
tion ; and so long as they continue corporations 
the Concord and Montreal RR. is obliged to pay 
to the Concord RR. Corporation $500 a year, and 
to the Boston, Concord and Montreal RR. $300 a 
year, for organization expenses. The railroads 
owned, leased, and controlled by this corporation 
are leased to the Boston and Maine RR. for 91 
years from April 1, 1895, the lessee assuming all 
liabilities of this company, and agreeing to pay 
as rental dividends of 7 p. c. per annum on the 
capital stock. The lease further provides, that In 
the event of the termination of the lease of the 
Boston and Lowell RR. to the Boston and Maine 
RR. the former shall become entitled to the re- 
maining term of the lease of the Concord and 
Montreal RR. ( See Manual for 1902, page 10. ) 

At a special meeting, held April 8, 1903, the 
stockholders voted to acquire the property of the 
Concord Street Ry.. and to issue for that purpose 
not exceeding 5,000 shares of capital stock. It 
has been decided to issue at once 1,000 shares of 
Class 4 stock.

2. Water Lines. A regular marine service for distributing and collecting summer 
travel is maintained between the road's terminus at. Rockland and Islesboro and Cas- 
tine; also between the terminus of the Bar Harbor 'Branch at Mt. Desert Ferry and 
Hancock Point, Sorrento, Sullivan, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Seal Harbor, and 
Southwest Harbor. In 1901 the company added to its fleet used in this service the 
steamboat Pemaquid, at a cost of $50,000, and in 1902 it built and put in operation 
the steamboat Norumbega, costing $62,000. The fleet now consists of the Sappho, 137 
tons; the Sebenoa, 44 tons; the Pemaquid, 225 tons; and the Norumbega, 142 tons. 
The company also operates a steam ferry across the Kennebec River between Bath and 
Woolwich, which supplies a connection between the Bath Branch and the Rockland 
Branch. The company controls the Portland, Mt. Desert and Machias Steamboat Co. 

31. History Consolidation, Oct. 28, 1862, of the Androscoggin and Kennebec RR. Co. 
and the Penobscot and Kennebec RR. Co. The Portland and Kennebec RR., the Somer- 
set and Kennebec RR. and the Leeds and Farmington RR. were absorbed on Nov. 16, 
1874; the Maine Shore Line RR. (Mt. Desert Branch) in 1888, and the Knox and Lincoln 
Ry. (Rockland Branch and Woolwich Ferry) in Feb., 1901. (See MANUAL for 1885, page 
6; MANUAL for 1890, page 38; and MANUAL for 1901, page 17.) The old Knox and 
Lincoln RR. Co. (see MANUAL for 1892, page 358) retained a nominal corporate exist- 
ence until Aug 9, 1901, when it was absolutely dissolved by a decree of the Supreme 
Judicial Court of Maine, its powers passing to the Maine Central RR. Co.

The company's four-track line is completed between New York and Hew Haven, except 
at Bridgeport, where the work is nearing completion. 

2. History. Consolidation, Aug. 6, 1872, of the Hartford and New Haven RR. and 
the New York and New Haven RR. A sketch of the history of the company is in the 
MANUAL for 1901, on pages 21 and 22. The Stamford and New Canaan RR. was absorbed 
on Oct. 1, 1890; the Hartford and Connecticut Valley RR., on Dec. 21, 1892; the New 
York, Providence and Boston RR., on Feb. 3, 1893: the Shore Line RR., on March 18, 
1897; the Housatonic RR., on March 28, 1898; and the Shepaug, Litchfield and Northern 
RR., on July 8, 1898. The Housatonic RR. was acquired by issuing one share of capital 
stock of this company in exchange for every eight shares of Housatonic preferred stock; 
the basis of exchange for the stocks of the other roads was share for share (see MANUAL 
for 1901, page 22). This company also offered shares of its capital stock in exchange 
for the shares of other of its leased lines on the terms stated in the MANUAL for 1894, 
on page 583, and in the MANUAL for 1899, on page 26. The following statement shows, 
as of June 30, 1902, the progress made in the acquisition of the stocks of the companies 
embraced in the latter offer and the amount of its capital stock issued by the " New 
Haven " company for such purpose :

I5a. Electric Lines Owned and Operated. Since 1895, when electric traction was sub- 
stituted for steam power on the Nantasket Beach RR., the company has been gradually 
extending the use of electricity to such branch lines as could be advantageously operated 
thereby. Up to June 30, 1902, the following lines had been transformed into clcctru- 
roads: Nantasket Beach RR., 6.95 miles; Plymouth Division of Old Colony RR., from 
Braintree to Cohasset, Mass., 11.7 miles; New Canaan Branch of N. Y., N. H. & H. RR., 



26 



POOR'S MANUAL OF RAILROADS NEW ENGLAND GROUP. 



7.66 miles; New England RR., from Hartford to Bristol, Conn., 17.9 miles; Providence, 
Warren and Bristol RR., 14.35 miles; and Berlin Branch of N. Y., N. H. & H. RR., 3.18 
miles. The overhead trolley system is used on the Nantasket Beach RR., the Providence, 
Warren and Bristol RR., and the New Canaan Branch, while the third rail system is 
employed on the Berlin Branch and on the electric sections of the Old Colony and the 
New England RRs. 

In addition to the electric roads it operates directly, the company controls the Meri- 
den Electric RR. Co., whose line extends from Meriden to Wallingford, Conn., 18 miles, 
and the Stamford Street RR. Co., operating 10.77 miles of line in the city and town of 
Stamford, Conn. 

Water Lines Owned and Controlled. The company owns the Providence and Stoning- 
ton Steamship Co., the New Haven Steamboat Co., and the New London Steamboat Co., 
and, through the leases, respectively, of the Old Colony RR. and the Norwich and Wor- 
cester RR., controls the Old Colony Steamboat Co. and the Norwich and New York 
Transportation Co. The company assumed the outstanding bonds of the New Haven 
Steamboat Co., amounting to $364,500 (see Sec. 13a), as part of the purchase price of 
that property. The New London Steamboat Co. was purchased in 1901. It operates 
two freight steamers between New London and New York, and also operates a line of 
steamers between New London, Watch Hill and Block Island. The steamboat lines are 
under the direct management of the company, but their earnings are not included in its 
income account (Section 6) except that the dividends received from them are included 
in the item " dividends on stocks owned." 

Control of Bridgeport Steamboat Company Acquired. In February, 1903, the com- 
pany acquired control of the Bridgeport Steamboat Co., which operates a day and night 
line of passenger and freight steamers between New York City and Bridgeport, Conn.

1. History. The Baltimore and Ohio RR. Co. was chartered in Maryland on Feb- 
ruary 28, 1827, and in Virginia on March 8, 1827. The construction of the road was 
begun on July 4, 1828, and the main line was opened throughout on January 1, 1853. On 
March 1, 1896, the property was placed in the hands of receivers, by whom it was oper- 
ated for more than three years. It was restored to the company on July 1, 1899, a reor- 
ganization having been effected, without foreclosure, under the terms of the plan outlined 
in the MANUAL for 1898, on page 1378 et seq. The story of the enlargement of the system 
since the reorganization, including an account of the financial developments connected with 
such enlargement, is in the MANUAL for 1902, on pages 46 and 47. A sketch of previous 
enlargements of the system is in the MANUAL for 1898, on page 298, and a review of the 
financial operations of the company, covering the period from Sept 30, 1884, to June 30, 
1895, is in the MANUAL for 1896, page 376. 

During the year ending June 30, 1902, the Snyder Avenue Branch of the Schuylkill 
River East Side RR. was extended from Snyder Avenue to Jackson Street in Phila- 
delphia, a distance of 1 mile; the Patuxent Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio RR. was 
extended from Savage Factory to Guilford, Md., a distance of 3.03 miles; a branch was 
constructed, under the charter of the Paw Paw RR. Co., from Fairmont to Gray's Flat, 
W. Va., a distance of 7.3 miles, and the Niver Coal Fields Line was built from 
Berlin, Pa., to Niver Coal Mines, No. 1, a distance of 1.69 miles; a total of 13.02 miles 
added by construction to the mileage of B. & 0. Lines. 

At the date of the annual report the company was about finishing the construction 
of a new line under the charter of the Patterson Creek and Potomac RR. of West Vir- 
ginia, leaving the present Cumberland Division at Patterson Creek, a station 7.1 miles 
east of Cumberland, intersecting the Cumberland Division again near Potomac Station, 

10.3 miles west of Cumberland. The length of the cut-off line is 6.9 miles, the old line 

17.4 miles, resulting in the saving in distance of 10.5 miles. The new line crosses the 
Knobley Mountains by a tunnel 4,120 feet in length. In addition to shortening the dis- 
tance, the maximum east bound grade 26.4 feet is reduced to 15.8 feet, with degrees of 
central angle lowered from 1,188 to 380 degrees, and the maximum curvature reduced 
from 9 to 6 degrees. The line is double tracked, and will be used in the movement of 
coal and other business from the company's West Virginia and Southwestern lines. 

Under the charter of the Cherry Run and Potomac Valley RR. of West Virginia, a 
new line was being constructed between Cherry Run and Wilsons, a distance of 9.64 
miles, which, when completed, will furnish a line with maximum grades of 15.8 feet, 
and which improves the curvature between these points, besides eliminating the helper 
grade at the company's Paw Paw tunnel summit. 

The system extends from Philadelphia, Pa., Baltimore, Md., and Washington, D. C., 
to Chicago, 111., and to St. Louis, Mo., with branches to Mount Jewett, Pa., to Fairport, 
Cleveland, Lorain, and Sandusky, on Lake Erie, and to several points on the Ohio River. 
In connection with the Philadelphia and Reading Ry. and the Central RR. of New Jer-

The prior lien mortgage also covers the lease of the Pittsburgh and Connellsville RR. and of the 
Fayette County RR. Claims against the Pittsburgh and Connellsville RR. Co. for about $10,500,000, 
against the Washington County RR. Co. for about $85,000 and against the Berkeley Springs and 
Potomac RR. Co. for about $125,000, together with two-thirds of the capital stock of the Washing- 
ton Branch RR. Co., are deposited as further security for the mortgage. In the adjustment of the 
claim against the Berkeley Springs and Potomac RR. Co. the title to its property will probably be 
acquired by the B. & O. RR. Co. and subjected to the direct lien of the mortgage. The constructed 
section (2.25 miles) of the Metropolitan Southern RR., when the title to it is acquired by the B. & 
O. RR. Co., will also be subjected to the lien of this mortgage, although the securities of the Metro- 
politan Southern RR. Co. are deposited under the first mortgage (see next paragraph). The prior 
lien mortgage is also secured on all the equipment now owned or hereafter acquired by the com- 
pany, except such as was or may be acquired with the proceeds of 1st mtge. bonds, Southwestern 
Division bonds, Middle Division bonds and Pittsburgh, Lake Erie and West Virginia System bonds. 
First Mortgage Gold Bonds. Authorized issue, $165,000,000 ; issued to June 30, 1902, $67,- 
500,000; reserved for additions and betterments, $22,500,000; set apart to be used only for the 
retirement of the prior lien bonds, $75,000,000. Of the bonds reserved for additions and better- 
ments, $1,500,000 are issuable during the year ending June 30, 1903, and the rest of them at not 
exceeding the rate of $1,000.000 a year thereafter. Included in the $67,500,000 issued to June 30, 
1902, were unsold fractions amounting to $462.50 and $29,397.50 held to redeem old bonds not 
deposited under the plan of reorganization, the amount actually outstanding being $67,470,140. The

bonds are secured by first mortgage on all equipment acquired or that may be acquired with the 
proceeds from the sale of any of them, and they may be said to be secured by first mortgage on the 
Philadelphia, Sparrows Point and Highlandtown Branches, 55.1 miles, and on the property 
formerly covered by the B. & O. terminal mortgage (see MANUAL for 1899, page 60), the Philadel- 
phia Division bonds and the terminal mortgage bonds having been declared due and payable, and 
there being only $1,000 of the former and $500 of the latter outstanding. By deposit of underlying 
securities as well as by direct mortgage lien they are also practically a first mortgage on the pro- 
prietary and leased lines named in the following statement :

It will be observed that the total amount not deposited under the B. & O. plan on June 30, 
1902, is greater by $69,288 than the amount given in the general balance sheet. This difference Is 
due to the fact that the $69,000 Pittsburgh and Connellsville bonds are not included in the balance 
sheet item and to the additional fact that 1,800 of sterling bonds valued in the preceding statement 
at five dollars to the pound sterling are included In the balance sheet item at their exchange value.

POOR'S BUREAU 



OF 



Information and Investigation, 

Conducted in connection -with and as an adjunct to 

Poor's Manual of Railroads, 

WILL FUKNI8H rPON ORDER 

Detailed information relative to new or projected Railroads, 

Analyses of Railroad and other reports, 

Statistics of Steam, Electric, Cable and Horse Railways, 

Advance information relative to Railroad reports, etc. ; or will make 

Full and comprehensive investigations into Railroad mortgages, bonds, leases or 
other contracts. 

In a word, we propose to furnish information of any character coming within the scope 
of this Bureau, but not contained in or within the province of our three annual publica- 
tions, viz.: 

POOR'S MANUAL, OF RAILROADS, 

POOR'S HAND-BOOK ON INVESTMENT SECURITIES, 
POOR'S DIRECTORY OF RAILWAY OFFICIALS and 
MANUAL OF AMERICAN STREET RAILWAYS. 

Subscribers to any of the above-named works may address their inquiries to us, and 
a prompt reply will be mailed at a cost based upon the length of time occupied on the work. 

Special attention will be given to the preparation of Historical Statements of existing 
or defunct corporations ; to investigations into the value of old railroad bonds, and to the 
preparation of statistical exhibits designed to show the value of railroad securities. Besides 
this, investigations will be made at any time through official channels into the status of 
new projects, and reports made thereon. Proceedings in foreclosure or reorganization will 
be carefully followed, and all facts relating to such proceedings noted for reference. 

It is believed that the establishment of this Bureau will prove of great benefit to t 
subscribers for our annual publications, as it will enable them at a nominal cost to avail of 
our unequalled facilities for the collection of news items relative to Railroad Invest- 
ments or projects, besides securing the privilege of access to our Library, which contains 
all reports and documents issued during the past half century. 

Annual subscribers to this Bureau may call for whatever information they desire 
daring the period of their subscription. Terms upon application. Address

4. Trackage Rentals. For the use of the line from Butler to New Castle the 
company pays a yearly rental equivalent to 5 per cent, on one-half the cost tin-rent', 
besides a wheelage proportion of the cost of maintenance and operation ; and for the 
use of the line from Ribold Junction to Allegheny City it pays a fixed rate per car. 
For the use of the tracks of the Erie RR. between Mount Jewett and Clarion Junction 
the company pays a yearly rental of $30,169.43, besides a wheelage proportion of the cost 
of maintenance and operation. 

5. History. Consolidation, March 11, 1887, of the Buffalo, Rochester and Pitts- 
burgh RR. Co. and the Pittsburgh and State Line RR. Co., corporations chartered 
respectively in New York and in Pennsylvania, in pursuance of the plan for the reorgani- 
zation of the original Rochester and Pittsburgh Ry. Co. A sketch of the history of the 
system, brought down to the date of the consolidation, is in the MANUAL for 1887, on pages 
125 and 126, and in subsequent editions later developments are recorded. 

Indiana Branch. By a circular, dated July 23, 1902, the stockholders were advised 
that, for the purpose of reaching coal lands which have been acquired and are being 
developed in the interest of the Rochester and Pittsburgh Coal and Iron Co. and of the 
Jefferson and Clearfield Coal and Iron Co., the board of directors had resolved to issue, 
at par, $1,300,000 additional common capital stock. The proceeds of $800,000 of this 
stock will be used to pay for the construction of a branch 28 miles long from a point 
on the main line near Punxsutawney to Ernest, Indiana County, Pa., leaving $500,- 
000 for future extensions. Since then it has been thought advisable to further extend 
the system, about 34.6 miles, to reach coal lands near Vintondale, Pa., controlled by 
the Lackawanna Steel Co. of Buffalo. Of this additional extension, 16.6 miles, to Black 
Lick Station on the Indiana Branch of the Pennsylvania RR., are to be constructed by 
this company, at an estimated cost of $560,000; and an agreement has been entered 
into with the Pennsylvania RR. Co. for trackage over the remaining 18 miles, from 
Black Lick to Vintondale. It is expected that the branch will be completed in 1903. 

Contract for Use of Beech Creek Extension. By a traffic contract entered into in 
1902, and to endure for 25 years, this company has the right to use the Beech Creek 
Extension RR. of the New York Central System as another outlet for the interchange 
of traffic of all kinds with the Reading System. The Beech Creek Extension is a line 
of easy grades from Clearfield via Keating, Pa., to a connection with the Philadelphia 
and Reading Ry.
