The newly-formed Middlesex and Boston Street Railway was created August 15, 1907 , but by 1910, Boston Suburban Electric Companies, a holding company, had bought the M&B.

The routes taken over were renumbered by adding a 5 to the beginning and were renumbered in September 1982 and some in 1996. Picture taken at barn in Waltham. James Ferneau was murdered in a hold up on Oct. 4, 1925 at this Waltham barn. Four men were sentenced to death.
