One cash book generated by the Amador Branch Railroad.
The Amador Branch Railroad was incorporated July 3, 1875, 27.20 miles from Galt to Ione, California, opened December 3, 1876. Operated by the Central Pacific Railroad from December 3, 1876 until April 1, 1885, and by the Southern Pacific Company until May 15, 1888, the date of consolidation with other roads to form the Northern Railway. The Amador Branch had no locomotives under its own name. The trackage is now known as the Ione Branch, connecting at Ione with the eight-mile Amador Central Railroad, an independently owned common carrier.
