NILES CANYON RAILWAY

IN 1869, THE FIRST TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY PASSED THIS SPOT ON ITS WAY TO
THE SHORE OF SAN FRANCISCO BAY. IN 1984, SOUTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD ABANDONED
THIS HISTORIC LINE BETWEEN NILES AND TRACY, CALIFORNIA.
VOLUNTEERS OF THE PACIFIC RAILROAD ASSOCIATION HAVE REBULIT THE PORTION OF
THE LINE BETWEEN SUNOL AND NILES, SO THAT FUTURE GENERATIONS MAY ENJOY A
RIDE OVER THIS IMPORTANT LINK IN AMERICA'S RAILROAD HERITAGE.
DEDICATED TO COMMEMORATE THE ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY
OF THE ORIGINAL TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD.
