By 1875 the need to easily move grain, livestock, wood and stone from Berryessa Valley and the surrounding area to markets was recognized. In the spring of 1875 work began on a 13 mile extension of the railroad from Vacaville to Theodore Winters' crossing of Putah Creek. Brothers G.B. and A.B. Stevenson conceived this extension of their railroad as well as plans for the new town of Winters. By May of 1875 a map of townsite had been recorded and construction on both was progressing as fast as possible. The official opening of the new line took place on August 26, 1875.
