§8 Some comparisons

A few comparisons may interest some of you. Relative sizes of the Central New England, the Poughkeepsie and Eastern and the Newburgh, Dutchess and Connecticut are indicated below. It is difficult to choose a year but 1905, just two years before the latter two roads were merged into the CNE System, seems to be as representative as any. The data are taken from "The Report of the Railroad Commissioners, 1905."
