The Central Pacific Railroad began in Council Buff, Nebraska. It did not begin in Omaha, that is a wrong fact. The railroad ended in Promontory, Utah. The Union Pacific starte…d in Sacramento, California, and also ended in Promontory, Utah. They met at that place. Hope that helped (way to use the f****** internet for your homework btw)

The Central Pacific Railroad was planned by Theodore Judah but financed by the Big Four of Sacramento, California. They were Leland Stanford, Collis Huntington, Charles Cr…ocker, and Mark Hopkins.
Irish, Chinese, and Americans... The most important jobs were given to the Chinese and Irish. Lots of men died >.< If you want more information, go check www.google.com or www….wikipedia.com or something like that xD lol. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Thanks for reading this ^.- (winky winky =P LOL)
The Union Pacific covers 23 states west of the Mississippi river. The Central Pacific runs between California and Utah.
What was the date when the Central Pacific Railroad began its eastern journey to join the Union Pacific railroad heading west?
The Central Pacific Railroad was authorized by Congress in 1862 to build a railroad eastward from California. They laid the first rails in 1863. The "Golden spike", connecti…ng the western railroad to the Union Pacific Railroad at Promontory, Utah, was hammered on May 10, 1869.
Central Pacific Railroad was created in 1861.
