Old Sacamento, Sacramento: 27 reviews and 39 photos


<font color='maroon'size='4'><b> Old Sacramento has a 'pioneer' feeling. It's not a movie set and you know that you are in a place where things actually happened.The Central Pacific Passenger station was the first California terminal for the transcontinental railroad. Next to it is the California State Railroad Museum which contains 21 restored locomotives and train cars. The history of American railroading is well depicted in the exhibits and film presentations.</b></font>
