Joint Standing Comm. on Roads and Bridges. Act relative to rail-roads, 1842
Senate No. 27 In early February 1842, the Joint Standing Committee on Roads and Bridges reported a bill: An Act relative to Rail-roads, 1842.
Town selectmen could ask a railroad to move its track above or below grade, but if the railroad ignored the request, the selectmen could appeal to the
County Commissioners. If the the Commissioners agreed with the town, the railroad had to pay the cost of the appeal, but if the Commissioners did not
recommend action, the town had to pay. If the railroad still refused to act, the town had to sue in court. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title
originally held by the Library of Congress).
Title:   Ordered, that the Joint Standing Committee on Roads and Bridges, inquire if any, and if so, what further provisions are necessary to guard travellers on the highways in the Commonwealth, at points where they intersect the track of rail-roads.
