California State Railroad Museum, 2016 -- July 31, 2016
Today we drove to Sacramento. Traffic was good going up. We picked up tickets for a first class train ride, then visited the museum. There was an exhibit about signals, and a high speed rail mockup by Siemens.
After, we had a little lunch and then rode in observation car El Dorado on the Sacramento Southern. It was a nice ride. The stewards served cookies, pretzels or peanuts, and soft drinks.
We drove west on 80 and traffic was slow at several points. We stopped at the Nut Tree and had a bite at Fenton's.
