The real Jack London used this station when he would travel from Oakland to San Jose to visit friends. In the first chapter of the book he writes:

"No one saw him and Buck go off through the orchard on what Buck imagined was merely a stroll. And with the exception of a solitary man, no one saw them arrive at the little flag station known as College Park. This man talked with Manuel, and money chinked between them."
