Using archival film and photographs; interviews with historians, writers, Native Americans, and railroad representatives; and new cinematography, this film documents the building of the first transcontinental railroad. It took 20,000 men (10,000 of whom were Chinese immigrants) 6 years to build 1,700 miles of track stretching from Omaha to Sacramento. The Central Pacific founded by Theodore Judah and funded by Sacramento businessmen Charley Crocker, Mark Hopkins, Leland Stanford, and Collis Huntington worked from the West; and the Union Pacific run by Thomas C. Durant and civil engineer Greenville Dodge worked from the East. The completion of the railroad reduced the cross-country trip from several months to just 9 1/2 days, united the state of California with the rest of the U.S., and brought about a wave of western expansion
