Take the Fitchburg Railroad -- August 11, 2012

The Fitchburg Railroad ran across Massachusetts and operated the Hoosac Tunnel. I like this ad from Railway Agent, February 1892.  The Boston and Maine leased the road 8 years later and merged it into the parent company in 1919.  The MBTA operates its Fitchburg line from Boston to Fitchburg.  Pan Am Railways operates other surviving sections of the line.
