-  Scale ca. 1:420,000.
-  "The Shore Line possesses the advantages over the interior lines to Boston of being free from dust with cool and pleasant sea breezes in summer, from the water, which it skirts all the way from New York to Providence, being equally certain in its connections and its time of arrival. For passengers to Newport, Providence, New Bedford, Taunton and places on the Cape it is a direct reliable route of much shorter time than any other. Passengers leaving New York at 8 AM. arrive at Boston about 6 PM."
