Invoices, vouchers, and legal documentation for the San Francisco, Napa, and Calistoga Railway and its predecessor railroads the San Francisco, Vallejo & Napa Valley, and the Vallejo, Benecia & Napa Valley.
The San Francisco, Napa & Calistoga Railway came about in 1911 for the purchase and operation of the San Francisco, Vallejo & Napa Valley Railroad, which had itself been organized to extend the Vallejo, Benicia & Napa Valley Railroad. The Vallejo, Benicia & Napa Valley Railroad had been organized in 1903 to build from Vallejo to White Sulfur Springs, and from Napa to Jackson's Soda Springs. The line was completed to Calistoga in June 1907. The San Francisco, Napa & Calistoga was again reorganized in 1935 as the San Francisco & Napa Valley and survived until 1956.
