This is Sacramento's Union Station. At one time, this station was served by THREE different railroad companies--Oakland, Antioch, & Eastern, Northern Electric, and Central California Traction.

Actually the street is called Terminal Way, as it was named when the station was there...some think it was named as a warning for those eating at Jim-Denny's, a long-standing "greasy spoon" hamburger stand across the street from where the station stood.

The Best Western Sutter House motel at 11th and H is located there today. Behind the motel is "Station Alley"

As I recall, the RR Names that were actually placed on the plaques over the windows stated: Northern Electric, San Francisco-Sacramento RR (OA&E pred), and the Central California Traction..

The correct names embedded in the plaques were as follows: Sacramento Northern Railroad, San Francisco - Sacramento, and Central California Traction.
