  • § 3698. Connecting roads not to charge more for short than long distance; exception

    Two or more corporations whose roads connect shall not charge or receive for the transportation of freight to any station on the road of either of them a greater sum than is, at the time, charged or received for the transportation of the like class and quantity of freight from the same original point of departure to a station at a greater distance on the road of either in the same direction. This section shall not be construed as affecting the right of any railroad corporation to establish such rates on freights shipped over its line in carload lots from points outside the State to points beyond the State as may seem for its best interests, and the sum charged or received for the transportation of freight shall include all terminal charges.
