The Jupiter, one of the two trains on display seasonally at the Golden Spike National Historic Site in Utah.

The Golden Spike National Historic Site commemorates the completion of the first transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit. On that day, a golden spike was symbolically tapped into a polished laurel-wood tie and then a final iron spike was driven to complete the railroad, thus linking East and West for the first time.

The Visitor Center has interpretive exhibits, an 1869 steam locomotive replica, a museum, and a bookstore; restrooms, picnic areas, soft drink and snack vending machines.


Located 32 miles west of Brigham City, Utah, via highways 13 and 83, through Corinne.
