San Francisco and Marysville Railroad
The San Francisco & Marysville Railroad (SFMRR) was proposed in 1859 to “provide rail service from the communities of the northern Sacramento River".
The route would run from Marysville across the Feather River then south-southwest to cross the Sacramento River near Knights Landing. Then southwest to Vacaville to a landing near Vallejo. From there, paddleboats would provide extended service to San Francisco.
By the end of 1859, the company is unincorporated.
Management and Funding
The SFMRR is proposed by several California businessmen, lead by John Gunder North – who apparently wants to diversify.
