My father was the last president and general manager of the Sacramento Northern and Tidewater Southern.
The former Sankey Yard on the corner of Sankey and Pleasant Grove Road in Elverta is now operated by Modoc Railroad Academy.
Does anyone know if tracks still run from Broadway Terrace south to Moraga, alongside Hwy 13? A survivor from the SN era is the depot at Meridian, west of Yuba City on State Highway 20. I once heard that there's video's of bobby soxers and their friends getting on the train at Walnut Creek station in the 50's and 60's. I have an old VHS of the Sacramento Northern, depicting part of it as transit from Oakland to the old State fairgrounds at Stockton Blvd. The dotted lines could be either connecting passenger service by bus or connecting freight service by truck.
Does anyone know if the Iron Horse Trail crossing Monument Blvd is the ROW of the SN (former Oakland Antioch)? Regarding your comment for Colusa on the map, I own an older Sacramento Northern book which has a photo shows the track turning in a circle at the end of the line.
I saw a picture from the Sacramento Room that shows a NR car stopped across from Swantson's Meat Packing in North Sacrament. There is Still a siding overgrown next to the Bart tracks across from the Bart Yard in Concord.
As new technology let railroad trains go even faster, the need for a better system was increasingly evident. But businesses followed the lead of the railroads, and people showed up for work when employers said they needed to, and customers visited stores when shopkeepers said they were open. So convenient was the system of time zones that it thrived entirely on the say-so of the railroads for 35 years. Living in the Fairfield area for the last 10 years, I've noticed several spots in both Fairfield and Vacaville that might of been SN right of ways.
It gives a very good general overview of the route.Unfortunately, I have to point out another inaccuracy. He retired after 47 years with the railroad in 1965.I have memories of the right of way leases with cities expiring.
Now restored as a private residence, it was reportedly built from the same plans as the Pacific Electric Glendale station, which is long gone. There are two wide open areas between Monument Blvd and Treat that May have been passing tracks or even small yards.
No, the Iron Horse trail and the bridge next to Monument Blvd is not the ROW of the Sacramento Northern. Sacramento's Light Rail line was rebuilt over the right-of-way of the Swanston branch northeast of downtown Sacramento. I found Yolano and showed my mother the satellite and streetview images and she recognized the old house there as the old irrigation district office, but the house and station are gone.


The horse had been the fastest way to move people and goods from one place to another since the species was domesticated, as early as 4000 B.C. The Chicago Tribune, for instance, showed 27 local times in Michigan, 38 in Wisconsin, 27 in Illinois and 23 in Indiana. A single railroad that traveled east to west would use multiple noons: The Union Pacific, for example, had six different settings in what are today the Central and Mountain zones.
The multiplicity of local time settings also created complexity and confusion for operators and users of the telegraph (whose lines usually followed the rails) and the newfangled telephone. Allen, secretary of the General Time Convention, the group the railways had formed to coordinate their schedules. 18, conductors all over the United States and Canada resynchronized their watches from their individual railroads’ times to the new standard times.
And people arrived at the railroad station to catch trains that ran on the same time settings as the watches in their pockets and the clocks on the sidewalks.
Congress did not enact Standard Time until March 19, 1918, when it also initiated Daylight Saving Time as an efficiency measure during World War I. The SN disappeared when Western Pacific was merged into Union Pacific in 1982.When the Bay Bridge opened between San Francisco and Oakland, Sacramento Northern trains used the tracks on the lower deck. There's a spot from North Texas thru Airbase Parkway that looks to me a railroad right of way. On the west side or town the RR crossed US HWY 40 (I80) then turned SW parallel to the highway to Wilotta which was across Abernathy Rd. Moraga Avenue is too steep for trains, and 40th St between Broadway and Piedmont Ave had local Key System streetcars running along it. The embankment along the former ROW still exists north of here, but I don't know for how far. In Walnut Creek the Sacramento Northern did not go so far east - it did not go through the Broadway Shopping Center. When I moved to Sacramento in 1971 I remember seeing remnants of trackage just off of Stockton Blvd near the fairgrounds that hadn't been paved over yet. The Iron Horse trail is the old Southern Pacific RR line that ran from Martinez along Market Street in Concord (where there was a classic SP station but now sits the BMW dealership) thru Walnut Creek, Danville and San Ramon and terminating in Pleasanton where it joined the SP running between Stockton and Oakland. My grandparents (and father) made several trips to Concord from SF 100 years ago and would have ridden the Oakland & Antioch (SN). My thinking is that it came past the Essex Pencil Factory east along Bassetlaw Ave (now Arden) crossed Del Paso Blvd., and later turned left and crossed the American River. I want to know because the house she lived in around 1940 was near there and it would be neat to see if it's still there. The six-millennium reign ended quickly as networks of rails spread across North America and Europe at mid-century. The Union Station that served multiple railroads in a big city might have five or six different clocks, one for each railroad in the station, each running on is own time. They adopted five time zones: Intercolonial Time (now known as Atlantic Time in eastern Canada) and the Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones.
Some folks objected, thinking they were being robbed of minutes, just as people felt robbed of days when the calendar shifted from Julian to Gregorian in previous centuries.

The tracks on the bridge have been gone for decades, but the subject of rebuilding a transit line there is raised from time to time.


It turned North further East - following California Ave north to the current Walnut Creek Bart Station and then went where the Bart tracks are now. The wide space in the old SP ROW south of the bridge you see from Monument Blvd., was in fact, as I recall, a siding for the lumber company and grain and feed stores that were located off Hookston Rd. Guessing Bart saw no reason to remove it since it did not interfer with the double main line. If that meant that noon in a town a hundred miles away might be a few minutes ahead or behind your local noon, big deal.
In a large city, the many jewelers’ various observations might diverge by several minutes. Dowd, principal of Temple Grove Ladies’ Seminary at Saratoga Springs, New York, pushed the case in 1869 for four time zones, each the width of 15 degrees of longitude. Meanwhile, most of the mainline and branches have been abandoned, some segments are still in use or were rebuilt for new uses:1. Also when I moved here the right of way on Elmira in Vacaville was still there, it's since been paved over.
The ROW is actually shown on the map, along the edge of the Pat Vincent field, where the dark field meets the light field. I assume they've just been completely paved over since it would have been pretty costly to remove the rails.
The SP pulled up its tracks in -as I recall- the Fall of 1979.The SN, on the other hand, ran to the east of the SP ROW from Port Chicago (Concord Naval Weapons Station) south through Concord and Walnut Creek generally taking the same route as the current BART tracks.
Some places achieved citywide synchronization by dropping a time ball on a highly visible tower at noon every day. I have a book called When the Railroad leaves town with an article on the abandoning of rail's in Vacaville with pictures of a Bay area electric railroad assoc. I think there was a split several blocks west and ran along side what was called Traction St. Sacramento's Light Rail line was rebuilt over the right-of-way of the Swanston branch northeast of downtown Sacramento.3. From Walnut Creek it swung west through Lafayette, Moraga and Canyon (megatropolis of the west) and then into the tunnel to Oakland.The SN pulled up its remaining track from the Concord BART yard up to Port Chicago in the early 1980's. It is between the Bart main line and the fence line which has always been quite wide in the concord area.
The Western Railway Museum has acquired 20 miles of the former right-of-way between Sacramento and the Bay Area. You can google earth the ROW in the channel crossing area of susiun bay [both sides] and see that there is still much of the ROW with rails just laying there. The volunteers of the WRM rebuilt the track, and re-strung and energized overhead trolley wire along the way, allowing them to run excursions using vintage streetcars and interurbans (see picture below).4. The branch was Y-shaped, and connected to the SN main over tracks that are now operated by the Western Railway Museum. The branch crossed over the Southern Pacific Oakland-to-Sacramento mainline on a bridge, and then divided into two legs. One branch headed north-northwest to Vacaville, while the other headed southwest to Fairfield (near Rockville).
