How long did it take in 1879 to travel by train from New York to San Francisco?

Read The Amateur Emigrant by Robert Louis Stevenson. It recounts his trip from New York/New Jersey to San Francisco and Monterey in 1879. He traveled by regular coach trains to Omaha, and then by emigrant trains on to California.
