Event Description

The Central Pacific Railroad and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe in California, their beginnings, competition and interactions.
Synopsis:
California, the land of opportunity, was first served by its home grown Central Pacific Railroad and later by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. Vast fortunes were made, empires built and California developed into an agricultural and industrial power house. How and when did this happen and who were the players? As rails spun out of Sacramento in all directions, East, West, South and North, rails were also being laid from the Missouri River West. Where did they meet and how did they compete. Come learn about two great railroads in California in this 1 hour-45 minute presentation by CSRM Docent Paul Helman.
