Bay State Iron Co. tracks

From: "Nancy S. Seasholes" nseashol@bu.edu

Is it really true, as you say on your web page entitled "Bay State Iron Company CPRR Rail, 1863 & 1866," that the very first rail for the western part of the transcontinental RR., laid in Sacramento in October 1863, was made by the Bay State Iron Co. of Boston? I'm a historian working on interpretive signage for the former Bay State Iron site and need to know whether that statement on the web page is really true.
