Sacramento and the Gold Country Sights



Central Pacific Railroad Passenger Station

Central Pacific Railroad Passenger Station Review

At this reconstructed 1876 depot there's rolling stock to admire, a typical waiting room, and a small restaurant. Part of the year a train departs from the freight depot, south of the passenger station, making a 40-minute out-and-back trip between the Sacramento River and, less interestingly, Interstate 5.
