In which Phileas Fogg and party travel by the Pacific Railroad

  • The journey by train from San Francisco to New York goes by without incident.
  • A herd of ten to twelve thousand buffalo delay the train, and the passengers watch in awe as the gigantic bison consume the landscape. Passepartout is furious at the delay, but once again, Phileas is unconcerned.
  • After three hours, the herd has passed and the train gets going again.
