   Wednesday, July 10, 1861 (continued):  Thoreau and Mann's express train to Boston crossed from New Hampshire into Massachusetts.  Normal train schedules seemed not to publish the express's exact arrivals and departures from the depots.  But the following route represents the tracks it traveled and the towns it passed through.  The train arrived at Boston at 8:30 p.m.  Unfortunately, no transportation to Concord was available until the following morning.
