Sacramento has a long history with the railroad, from serving as the home to the “Big Four” (Collis Huntington, Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker and Mark Hopkins) to our proud standing as site of the California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento. Two grand 20th-century depots plus a third, reconstructed 19th-century station, still stand in the city. Among these, the Amtrak (former Southern Pacific) station is currently used for the successful San Jose-Oakland-Sacramento Capitol Corridor trains. Located approximately a mile northwest of the Convention Center Complex, the depot is a convenient first or last stop in your visit to Sacramento when traveling the rails.
