Back To The Future

From: "Ron Bentley" lrv2@optusnet.com.au

I am looking to build a model railway layout of the fictional Hill Valley circa 1955. According to the Back To The Future 3 movie, the town was serviced by the Central Pacific Railway in 1885.

I live in Australia and have little access to information about the railway line. Please advise – is the Central Pacific Railway still in existence? Did it exist in 1955, if not, what rail service operated in Northern California in 1955?
