My Top Five Blog
On April 29, my class and I went to the Sacramento Railroad Museum and learned alot. My top five best things I learned were...
1. There are 3,000 crossties under a mile of track. Wow!!!
2. The mail box car could hold 600,000 pounds of mail. Crazy!!!
3. The Chinese men got horrifying jobs like being dangled off a cliff to blast the cliff away. Freaky!!!
4.The telegraph was invented with electricity to send a message across the continent in at least 2 seconds. Cool!!!
5.The date of the Ten Mile day is April 28, 1869. The Ten-Mile day is when the Central Pacific laid ten mile of track in one day. Awesome!!!
