This documents details the costs of the expansion eastward to Murray Harbour of the Prince Edward Island Railway at the turn of this century. Included are the contracts and costs of several of the new stations, the Hillsboro' Bridge, listing all the contractors, suppliers, and those who's land was sold of taken to/by the railway for the project.
