Its name stands alongside notables like the Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Pennsylvania, Baltimore & Ohio, and Illinois Central. The "Espee" carries a heritage tied to one of the most important events in American history, completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. Afterwards, Central Pacific's so-called "Big Four" (Collis P. Huntington, Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker, and Mark Hopkins) jockeyed for total control of California's transportation network. To do so, they created the Southern Pacific and rapidly expanded their new enterprise throughout the Golden State. "
