Mormon subcontractors building the Central Pacific Railroad

... I'm very interested in the building of the railway through Utah and am wondering if you might have access to ... communications [between the CPRR and] Bishop Chauncey W. West. Also, I would be very interested in finding some original source documents which may describe the negotiations with Brigham Young, his choice of Mormon subcontractors and the responsibilities of those contractors in building the railway.

Any thoughts or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
