Some date prior to the incorporation of the Central Pacific. The early vouchers contain such information as payrolls for teams surveying the route across the Sierra Nevada, purchases of equipment for the surveys, and purchases of newspaper advertisements for the incorporation of the Central Pacific and for the initiation of construction. Later vouchers cover such items as the acquisition of equipment and supplies for building the railroad as well as for its early operation. Prominent individuals mentioned in the voucher collection include Theodore D. Judah, Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker, Mark Hopkins, Collis P. Huntington, and Alfred Hart.
The Central Pacific voucher collection is arranged by voucher number which is in rough chronological order. Each number series in parentheses equals one document box.

Legal descriptions of the properties are given on each page of maps, with each section of land depicted divided into sixteenths. The volumes cover both Central Pacific and Southern Pacific Railroads, with four volumes for each.
The maps provide information on the date property was certified to the railroads by the United States General Land Office, grant boundaries, lands in dispute, lands under contract, lands not selected by the railroads for the grant, and lands lost from the grant through sale, transfer or relinquishment to the federal government. For sales of property after 1906, the name of the purchaser is indicated on the maps. The maps also show mineral and timber lands, national forests, Indian and military reservations, irrigation districts, town limits, roads, railroads and station sites, and principal geographical features. Some volumes are stamped indicating their receipt by the Land Department in 1910, although there are many other subsequent holographic notations indicating use through 1949.
