Central Pacific Railroad

CPRR Crew -

We need money! I've been looking for investors here in California. Can you help? Learn everything that you can about these men. They've been called The Big Four.

I've talked Collis P. Huntington, Mark Hopkins, Leland Stanford, and Charles Crocker into each buying $15,000 dollars of stock in the new railroad. Should I trust them? Present a brief report about each of The Big Four. You can earn miles of track based on the quality of your report. Be ready to answer some questions to earn bonus miles.
