1869-1942

Mile 765.0 from San Francisco

This site was christened Victory on April 28, 1869 when Central Pacific Workers rested for lunch after laying six miles of track during the famous laying of ten miles of track in a day. The site was later named Rozel, after the nearby mountains. Although it was an unimportant flag stop for tourists, Rozel was an important stop for freight trains. "Helper" engines stationed here assisted these heavy trains up the steep grades of the Promontory Mountains.
