I stopped in Sacramento for one reason: to visit the California State Railroad Museum. Again. I am a ferroequinologist so I was in a state of euphoria on the day I spent at the museum. When I was kicked out of the museum at closing time, I wandered around Old Sacramento where the museum is located.
Outside of the museum building is a turntable and the roundhouse doors that enter into the museum. The museum uses the door and turntable to change the locomotives that are on display. There's an operating Sacramento Southern diesel switcher, a Southern Pacific passenger train on static display, and a Santa Fe locomotive on static display.
