Chatham Railroad Company. Organized in 1886, with the purpose of building a 7 mile railroad from Chatham to Harwich. The line was built, leased and operated by the Old Colony Railroad, with which the Chatham line connected in Harwich. Construction began in May of 1887 and the rails took only 7 days to complete (1 mile/day). The line carried both passengers and freight until 1932, when passenger service was discontinued, done in by the automobile. The company went under shortly afterward. Its last freight run was in 1937. The railroad's original depot is now the Chatham Railroad Museum.
Stock. Issued in 1921. #408.
