Fair Oaks Railroad Station

At the same time as the first bridge was built, Southern Pacific built a spur line from the main Sacramento - Placerville railroad which ran along Folsom Blvd. to the city of Folsom. The train station was near the south end of the bridge where the auto wrecking yard is. The road extended on pilings all the way from the bridge to the train station.

Passenger traffic was discontinued during the 1920ís and the station mainly served the rock crushing plant. The station was torn down in the mid 1950's with the parkway development.
