REPORT

OF THE NASHUA AND LOWELL RAILROAD CO.

To the Honorable Legislature of the

Stale of New Hampshire: The Directors of the Nashua and Lowell Railroad Corporation, hereby submit their tenth annual report of their acts and doings, receipts and expenditures, under their acts of incorporation, for the year ending April 30, 1845. The capital stock of said corporation is $380,000 00.

During the past year two dividends have been declared, one of 6 per cent. and one of 10 per cent. The whole sum so divided was $60,800. This, it will be perceived, is a larger sum than

the gross annount of income for the year, after deducting the expenses.

A sum equal to a dividend of 6 per cent. has been taken from the fund, which has been accruing from the commencement of the road, and was originally reserved and designed to meet the contingencies and depreciation of road, furniture, &c., which already far exceeds that amount.

It must be obvious to every one, that a road built upon wooden substructure, as well as the buildings and machinery, although kept in order for immediate use, must not only have deteriorated much from the original cost and value, but require a vastly greater expenditure to keep them in repair.

The amount thus taken from the surplus fund has reduced the same on the 30th day of April last, to $5,239 79; and although these dividends are comparatively large, yet they make an average of less than 9 per cent. on the capital stock since it was paid in, which is more than one per cent. less than the charter authorizes the company to divide.

The stockholders, at a special meeting for that purpose, on the 10ih January last, authorized the construction of a second track over our road, from Lowell to its junction with the Concord, at Nashville. The greater security to the travelling public, by means of a double track, renders the improvernent very desirable, and the increased and increasing business upon this line of road from other sources, as well as the extension of the line above Concord, renders it necessary, if not indispensable. The length of the line from Boston to Concord is about 76 miles-50 of which is a single track only. It is apparent, therefore, that with the most prudent management, delays must frequently occur, much to the annoyance of those affected, and without any accidental or unforeseen detention,

A portion of the trains are daily detained at Nashville, to allow opposite trains to pass them, and the freight trains are delayed at Lowell for the same cause.

It is believed that the business will be much facilitated and the public better secured against collisions and other accidents, than by so long a line of single track.

The work has been commenced, and it is expected that the track will be completed, ready for use, during the present year.
