Notes on the Geography of The Western United States: The Central Pacific Railroad: Photo 7
A block from the hardware store, Sacramento also has the fine California State Railroad Museum, which includes a couple of engines from the pioneer period. This one is Central Pacific No. 1, built in Philadelphia in 1862, shipped around Cape Horn, and put in service while the railroad was still under construction. It remained in service until 1895. Named the Gov. Stanford, it was on display until 1963 at Stanford University.
