San Francisco to Oakland to Sacramento!

“Let us cross the bay to Oakland as soon as we can. Perhaps the quake will not run under the bay and we will be safe if we can reach Oakland.”  And the three ran down the street keeping together this time, for they knew every-one was too excited to pay attention to them.

“All aboard for Sacramento and the far east,” called the conductor, as he swung himself onto the train as it moved slowly out of the depot.

“Now,” said Billy, “we must follow the track the train is on until we get out of the city and then we will be all right, for there will be only one track running east.
