Miscellaneous financial documents from the Central California Railway.
Incorporated October 4, 1904, by the Southern Pacific Company. During the period from 1909 to September 12, 1910, the Southern Pacific Company, under the name of the Central California Railway, built 16.24 miles from Niles Junction across lower San Francisco Bay (Dumbarton Bridge) to Redwood Junction. The property was leased to the Central Pacific from the time construction was completed and formally sold to the Central Pacific Railway on February 29, 1912. [Guy Dunscomb, A CENTURY OF SOUTHERN PACIFIC STEAM LOCOMOTIVES, 1862-1962 (Modesto, California: 1967), p. 368]
