I know the Eastern, the Northern, and the Fitchburg were Divisions, but beyond that I'm a little lost. What about the WN&P, the Central Mass., the Connecticut River, and the Cheshire?The Cheshire was part of the Fitchburg Division I believe. The Conn River was it's own division and branches like the Ashuelot were part of the Conn river division. Don't know about the others.
