Sacramento, California

We went to Sacramento, the capital of California on Tuesday.  While there we visited the California State Railroad Museum.  There was at least a dozen trains in the museum, as well as a large collection of toy trains.  There was also a large collection of table settings in one of the dining cars.  One of the gold spikes, made to be used at the ceremony celebrating the meeting of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads at Promontory Point, Utah is also on display. Then we went to Old Sacramento, which has been revitalized by sprucing up the old store fronts, adding a wooden boardwalk and opening all of the stores.  The buildings are now restaurants, souvenir stores, clothing boutiques, candy stores, toy stores, taverns and more.  They also have a replica train station and the original school house in Sacramento.  We had a nice lunch at Angelina's, all the pastas and pizza you could eat for $6.99.
