Description:

Blueprint. 45x136 cm (17¾x54½").

Original blueprint for a proposed bridge over across Montesuma Slough, a tributary of Suisun Bay, part of the route of the twelve-hundred-volt electric line between San Francisco, Oakland, Danville, Pittsburg, and Sacramento. Plans and map of location were approved June 17, 1912, but construction was never begun, leaving the train passengers to take a ferry across the bay when service began in September 1913. The Oakland, Antioch & Eastern Railway was sold to the San Francisco-Sacramento Railroad Company in 1920. 

When combined with the Northern Electric Company the line connected San Fancisco and Chico via Sacramento, a distance of 183 miles. It ran through a tunnel almost three quarters of a mile long in the Oakland Hills.
