NEW RAILROAD FROM BOSTON TO NEW YORK.
Yesterday's Springfield Republican says: "The stockholders of the Worcester and Hudson railroad met at the State house in Boston yesterday afternoon and organized. This road is 18 miles long, and its estimated cost is $800,000, of which nearly $600,000 is guaranteed by parties in Boston, New York and the West. It is to make an additional line from Boston to Worcester by connecting at Hudson with the Central Massachusetts and Fitchburg railroads, insures a new line from Boston to Hartford and shortens the distance many miles between Boston and New York. The road follows the Boston and Albany four miles from Worcester to Shrewsbury lake, thence proceeding in nearly an air line through South Shrewsbury to Hudson. There are no grades exceeding 33 feet to the mile upon the entire line. The road has been surveyed and is expected to be built as soon as October 1, 1887."
