One of the nation's more unprofitable traction companies during the otherwise prosperous 1910-1924 period was Connecticut's Shore Line Electric Railway, with the recently acquired Norwich and Westerly traction companies works. The heavy red line denotes the Shore Line Electric Railway lines. The thin red lines "Electric Railways" and the thin black line, regular railroads. Shows an area from New Haven and Collinsville, Connecticut, eastward to Westerly, Rhode Island, and Webster, Massachusetts. Includes the eastern tip of Long Island and Block Island. Maps
