A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Golden Spike Collection - THE GOLDEN SPIKE was driven home on May 10, 1869 at Promontory Summit, near Ogden, Utah to complete the first transcontinental railroad, linking the east and west coasts with ribbons of steel track for the Iron Horse. To implement this monumental undertaking, the Pacific Railroad Act was signed by President Lincoln authorizing the construction. The Central Pacific Railroad laid track east from Sacramento, California and the Union Pacific laid track west from the Missouri River. Thousands of immigrant workers were instrumental in the incredible task of carving out the routes through the western mountains, almost entirely by hand. When they finally met near Salt Lake City the Central Pacific was represented by its President L. Stanford and its engine "Jupiter" while the Union Pacific was represented by its President Dr. Durant and its engine #119. As word was received that the link had actually been made, celebrations were begun all across the United States to mark the historic event. Soon virtually every town would be near a rail station. The Golden Spike!
