Newcastle, CA Union Pacific (0265)
Newcastle was on the first transcontinental railway (built by the Central Pacific) and this grade may be part of the original grade. The tunnel is for what was US-40, which in this area was the first transcontinental highway, the Lincoln Highway. Newcastle is in the foothills of the Sierras, thus the tunnel under the long railroad grade. In keeping with the American history highlights here, the two cars present (a Subaru and a Prius) are Japanese autos -- though the Subaru was most likely built in the U.S.
