The First Transcontinental Railroad (known originally as the "Pacific
Railroad" and later as the "Overland Route") was a 1,912-mile (3,077 km)
continuous railroad line constructed between 1863 and 1869 that connected
the existing eastern U.S. rail network at Council Bluffs, Iowa with the
Pacific coast at the Oakland Long Wharf on San Francisco Bay. The rail line
was built by three private companies over public lands provided by extensive
US land grants. Construction was financed by both state and US government
subsidy bonds as well as by company issued mortgage bonds. The Western
Pacific Railroad Company built 132 mi (212 km) of track from the road's
western terminus at Alameda/Oakland to Sacramento, California. The Central
Pacific Railroad Company of California (CPRR) constructed 690 mi (1,110 km)
eastward from Sacramento to Promontory Summit, Utah Territory. The Union
Pacific built 1,085 mi (1,746 km) from the road's eastern terminus at
Council Bluffs near Omaha, Nebraska westward to Promontory Summit, in Utah.

The railroad opened for through traffic between Sacramento and Omaha on May
10, 1869, when CPRR President Leland Stanford ceremonially tapped the gold
"Last Spike" (later often referred to as the "Golden Spike") with a silver
hammer at Promontory Summit. In the following six months, the last
leg from Sacramento to San Francisco Bay was completed .
