”The Indian Orchard railroad company, whose line subsequently became one of the branches of the Boston and Albany, was incorporated May 1, 1849, with $50,000 capital, by Warren Delano, jr., Timothy W. Carter, Addison Ware and Frederick A. Barton, “and their associates,” with authority to build a railroad ‘ from some convenient point on the land of the Indian Orchard canal company upon or near the southerly side of Chicopee river, in the town of Springfield, passing in the most convenient and feasible direction to the Western railroad within said town of Springfield, uniting with said Western railroad at a point within two miles of the 93d milestone upon said Western railroad.’ ”
