Amateur The Central Pacific broke ground on January 8, 1863. Due to the lack

Amateur of transportation alternatives from the manufacturing centers on the east coast

, virtually all of their tools and machinery including rails, railroad

switchesrailroad turntablesfreight and passenger cars, and steam

locomotives were transported first by train to east coast ports. They were

then loaded on ships which either sailed around South America’s Cape

Horn, or offloaded the cargo at the Isthmus of Panama, where it was sent

across via paddle steamer and the Panama Railroad. The Panama Rai

lroad gauge was 5 feet (1,524 mm), which was incompatible with the 4-foot-

12-inch (1,435 mm) gauge used by the CPRR equipment. The latter route

was about twice as expensive per pound.[citation needed] Once the machi

nery and tools reached the San Francisco Bay area, they were put aboard

river paddle steamers which transported them up the final 130 miles

(210 km) of the Sacramento River to the new state capital in Sacramento.

Many of these steam engines, railroad cars, and other machinery were

shipped dismantled and had to be reassembled.[citation needed] Wooden

timbers for railroad ties, trestles, bridges, firewood, and telegr

aph poles were harvested in California and transported to the project site.

The Union Pacific Railroad did not start construction for another 18 months

until July 1865. They were delayed by difficulties obtaining financial

backing and the unavailability of workers and materials due to the Civil

War. Their start point in the new city of Omaha, Nebraska was not yet

connected via railroad to Council Bluffs, Iowa. Equipment needed to begin

work was initially delivered to Omaha and Council Bluffs by paddle

steamers on the Missouri River. The Union Pacific was so slow in beginning

construction during 1865 that they sold two of the four steam locomotives

they had purchased.[citation needed]
