Re: CP/SP Coal History


The extension of light rail service to Folsom from Sacramento will open to the public in October of this year. This will be four months shy of the 150th birthday of the Sacramento Valley Rail Road, the first in the west, on virtually the same right-of-way. The modern commuter trip is expected to take 40 minutes. How long was the 22 mile trip in 1856?
