Notes on the Collection of Transfers

W. J. Sidis



        The division of transfers into classes, in so far as they are represented in our collection, is indicated below. Systems are denoted as in Appendix A, and sub-systems as in Appendix B. The names of the classes are preceded by the letter C or N, according to whether that name is a company name or not. The significance of the various classes is further indicated in parentheses, "Reg." meaning the regular transfers, "CP" meaning continuation transfers of the preliminary kind, "CF" meaning those of the feeder kind, "Em." meaning emergency transfers, and "Rep." meaning repeat. "Free" means a free transfer, and "Pay" means one for which a transfer fee is charged; "Ex." means exit coupons, "Ref." means refund, "Rec." means fare receipt, "Ov." means overlap, and "Gen." means a general form.
