Sacramento, the state capitol, is also home to the California State Railroad Museum. The Museum is conveniently located within a short walk of the Sacramento Amtrak Station. Three Amtrak routes (the Capitols, the San Joaquins, and the California Zephyr) conveniently service the city, providing plenty of incentive for a trip-by-train to the CSRM.
