In

Summer,
Trains leave
Boston three
times A.M., five
times P.M., and
arrive at Bos-
ton the same
number of
times.



A Season Ticket, not transferable, and payable in advance, is given for Three Months, at the price
of 50 single tickets, or at ^1.00 per mile. Between Boston and Woburn a discount of 10 per cent
from this rate is made on a ticket for a year. Between Boston and stations north of Woburn a dis-
count of 20 per cent, is made on a ticket for a year, and of 10 per cent, for six months.

A Season Ticket entitles a person to carry nothing but strictly personal baggage, or such parcels as
may be taken in the hand, without incommoding other passengers. Other artfcles, or merchandise
are not to be taken as baggage, except at the discretion of the Conductor, and by paying extra. '

Package Tickets are sold, to Woburn, South Woburn, and Medford, in lots of not less than 50
whole ones, or 100 half ones, and with any proportion of the two kinds, at three-fourths the cost of
Single Tickets. Season and Package Tickets are allowed at half price for children under 12 j-ears of
age, and persons attending school. Package Tickets are taken in any train and at any time. Season
Tickets may also be used in any train, and allow any number of daily passages. On the arrival of
every train at Boston, an Omnibus leaves the Passenger Station for State street; and 15 minutes
before the departure of every train from Boston, leaves State street for the Passeno-er Station Fare
6X cents, and 20 tickets for ^1.00. ° " '

ADVANTAGES OF A RESIDENCE ON THIS ROUTE.

Somerville, Medford, and Woburn present many delightful and healthy locations for a residence
not only for the gentleman of leisure, but the man of business in the city, as the cars pass through
these towns often during the day and evening, affording excellent facilities for communication with
Boston. Convenient tenements can be obtained at reasonable rates, which, too-ether with the low
price charged for the Season Ticket, make it an object of economy, as well as health and happiness to
reside in these places. In Billerica, also, a very healthful and agreeable retreat may be found in the
summer season. This route enjoys great facility of access to important places in the North and East.

The number of trains between Boston and Medford, and Boston and South Woburn is ten each
way ; not including three express trains, which pass by without stopping.

ADVANTAGES OF A RESIDENCE ON THIS ROUTE.

Special, as well as the longer Trains, possess many advantages for country residences, either through
the warm season or the whole year, not exceeded by those of any other towns in the vicinity of Boston.
The cheapness of fare, the number of Trains, both early and late, in connection with the convenient
Depot in Boston, render this railroad a desirable channel of intercourse between the city and country.

The Trains,

merous, and

ofter

strong

inducements

for

gentlemen

in the city,

to live

in the country,

both on

and

of

comfort.



All Season Tickets are nominally for a year, and are payable in advance as follows, viz :
For the 1st quarter, 3-5 per cent, of yearly rate. I For the 3d quarter, 2-5 per cent, of vearly rate.
" « 2d " 2.5 " « ^ » ' .. I " " 4th " 15 '• .< ' .. «

Thus giving to the purchaser the right to use them for three, six, nine, or twelve months, on payment
as above — it being understood that the right to continuance at these rates, is to be forfeited by non-
payment within three days of the beginning of the quarter.

No Season Ticket is transferable — nor will any be transferred by the Superintendent. But in cases
which seem to him to call for it, he will redeem the ticket at a fair valuation in cash.

The holder of a season ticket is entitled to no privilege beyond what is extended to transient Pas-
sengers, but is subject to the same contingencies and regulations in all respects.

Quarter or Term Tickets will be sold to scholars, as heretofore.

All Season Tickets are to begin or terminate on the first day of January, April, July, or October.

Newton Train Tickets pass in the Saxonville and Milford, as well as in the Newton Trains. Persons
holding Special Train Season Tickets, may purchase the privilege of using them in the Worcester
Trains, between Brighton, Newton Corner, or West Newton, and Boston, by paying ten dollars per
year, or not exceeding one dollar per month, for not less than three months.

ADVANTAGES OF A RESIDENCE ON THIS ROUTE.

No Railroad affords access to so many, so varied, and so splendid sea-side locations, or passes
through so many pleasant cities, towns, and villages. Its Depots are within a mile or two of the cele-
brated beaches of Chelsea, Nahant, Swampscot, and Marblehead. A Branch skirts the shores of Mas-
sachusetts Bay, in the towns of Beverly, Manchester, and Gloucester, opening most magnificent views
of the Ocean, leading to the most retired spots for sea-bathing, and to the most delightful walks and
drives in the native forests, that can be found in New England. This shore is rapidly filling up with
marine villas and cottages. Farther east, at Ipswich, Plum Island, Hampton, Rye, Boar's Head,
Wells, and Saco — extensive beaches, good public houses, and healthful resorts for summer residence,
afford advantages that are too well known to require description.
