Which Transcontinental Railroad?

Please enjoy your visit, but this CPRR.org_website is NOT about the Canadian Pacific Railway!  Many people who are looking for the Canadian Pacific Railway find themselves visiting our website by mistake because the names are so similar.
(It also doesn't help the search engines that Lewis_Metzler_Clement who built the United_States' Central_Pacific Railroad was born in Canada.)
