Sacramento Railway Station
California

Sacramento was the original western terminus of the Central Pacific transcontinental railroad. The present station was built in 1926 by the Southern Pacific Railroad. It features a mural portraying the groundbreaking ceremony for railroad construction in 1863.

More than a hundred trains a day use the Sacramento Valley Station, plus buses and Sacramento's light rail. A large area to its north, originally railroad yards and maintenance buildings, is undergoing redevelopment as the Sacramento Railyards. California High Speed Rail will one day have a northern terminus here.
