The Ione and Eastern Railroad, formed in 1906, ran from Ione to Martell in California's Sierra Nevada foothills. The line
was a 13-mile extension of the Amador Central Railroad. Initially its purpose was to provide transportation from Ione to Jackson
and Amador City during periods of inclement weather. Regular shipments on the Ione and Eastern consisted of gold ore from
local mines, as well as supplies bound for the mines. Later shipments included gold ore on its way to smelters, and firebricks
from pits near Ione.
