    Excerpt from Sixteenth Annual Report of the General Railroad Commissioners of the State of Connecticut, for 1869: Together With the Annual Report of the Railroad Companies in This State, for 1868, to Which Are Added, Leading Statistics Prepared by the Commissioners

    Nearly all the travel by railway from New York to Boston necessarily passes over this road, thus constituting it the Grand Trunk Line of the State for the transportation of passengers. It also has an extensive local business, the annual increase of which equals or exceeds that Of any other road in the State. It is therefore necessary, and the traveling public have a right to demand, that it should be made a first class road in every respect.

    Much labor has been expended within the last few years, on its road bed in ballasting, and various other improvements. Its bridges also have been extensively repaired or rebuilt.

    The Commissioners have, for some time, recommended the use of the steel rail. And this company has, the past year, laid tons of this rail, which relays nearly One-fourth their entire track, and we have every reason to believe its use will prove an entire success. The company has met with some loss by fire since our last report; two Of their first-class compartment cars, and also a portion of their workshops at New Haven, having been burned. This has subjected them to much temporary inconvenience. The company are now making preparations for rebuilding their shops on the land recently purchased at New Haven. These shops will be con structed on a liberal scale and of increased capacity, sufficient for repairs and the building of new engines and cars; will con sist of a round house, 279 feet in diameter, divided into sixty f our compartments, sufficient to stall as many locomotives; amachine shop 260 by 65 feet, With walls 16 feet high; a car and wood shop 200 by 80 feet a paint shop 180 by 55 feet; a blacksmith's shop 200 by 50 feet, with room for eleven forges on each side; abuilding 200 by 50 feet for the storage of lumber, and in addition, there are to be several smaller buildings. An engine of one hundred horse power is to be used for driving the machinery of the various shops. Square feet Of roofing will be required, also over feet of ¿ooring, and more than feet of lumber for the ¿oors to rest upon about bricks will be used in the con struction of the walls, and it is estimated that the buildings and machinery when completed will cost between and $500 000. We understand the company contemplate an entire completion of the work this season. Such increased facilities have long been needed, and will necessarily be of much benefit to the road in keeping up its rolling stock.
