The Dumbarton cut-off was constructed; the line between Tracy and Sacramento was double tracked; the gauge of the line from Alameda to Santa Cruz via San Jose was widened. A road was constructed from Sacramento to Walnut Grove. The Weed lumber road was purchased and extended through Klamath Falls to Kirk; the line from Natron to Oak Ridge was built. The suburban lines on the east side of the Bay of San Francisco were electrified. The line from Fernley, Nevada, to Westwood, California, was constructed.
