Wagon Land Adventure is proud to present Mark Hopkin’s Double C-Spring Buggy. Hopkins, a merchant and railroad developer, found fortune selling supplies to miners looking for gold in California. Hopkins was one of four principal investors who agreed to fund Theodore D. Judah’s idea of building a transcontinental railway. They formed the Central Pacific Railroad along with Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker, and Collis Huntington in 1861. In addition to the buggy, a railroad dumpcart, used to haul fill material to build the railroad grade, will also be on display along with all the other outstanding horse-down vehicles in the Wagonland Adventure collection.
