Ground was broken on November 21, 1864, and by January 1865 the grade and track laying was completed. The first train pulled into Napa City on July 10, 1865. Invited guests gathered at Revere House for appropriate ceremony, toasts, and lavish repast. Free rides were given to all who wished to embrace the opportunity. Elected officers were: President, A. Y. Easterby, Vice President; R. B. Woodward, Secretary; A. Badlam Jr., Treasurer; Sam Brannan.
