A small segment of the vast throng which crowded every advantage point to acclaim the arrival of Western Pacific’s first passenger train at Oakland on August 22, 1910. Speeches were lost in the din as the engine passed through the triumphal arch erected for the occasion by the Oakland Chamber of Commerce in honor of the new railroad. The engine never did quite reach the flag draped reviewing stand in front of WP’s station.
