The California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento will take you backward in time. By stepping into the trains, you can feel firsthand how Americans rode the rails and explored the frontier. The Museum houses different types of trains, such as postal trains, but what stole my heart were the passenger trains. A passenger train was divided into different cars for riding, sleeping, dining, or general relaxing — complete with cushioned chairs, candles, and full-sized tables and beds. There was something very romantic and cozy about it all.
