Map of the Electric Railways of the State of Massachusetts accompanying the report of the railroad commissioners, 1899.

By the late 1890's Massachusetts contained a huge network of electric trains, mostly centered at Boston and spiraling out to Lawrence, Lowell, Fitchburg, Worcester, New Bedford, Fall River, and Providence. Popularity in the electric train system fell after World War I and most tracks were filled in.

The Massachusetts electric train system was considered the most concentrated electric network of any state in this era.

This outline map, published in 1899 by Geo. H. Walker & Co., shows drainage, townships, cities and towns. Labeled street railways are indicated in red. Labeled steam railways are indicated in black.
