"One of the great defining moments in American History"
150th Gold Spike Anniversary Come and help celebrate the Gold, Silver, and Copper Spike
150 years ago the Gold Spike was driven to commemorate the binding of our continent together. Come and celebrate! Need some ideas?
Have you ever seen the Real American West? Plan a week-long road trip around the Golden Spike Territory. We put together a complete itinerary, including Salt Lake, Promontory Point, Ely, NV, and even driving on a portion of the original transcontinental roadbed.
You can ride the Copper Spike Limited or one of the other excursion trains up Robinson Canyon toward the old Ruth Mining District and actually see the original copper spike.
We will send one of our official 2019 Nevada Northern Railway calendars to each family that purchases train rides and/or a Hand-On-History events.
This calendar features full-size action-shots of most of our historic equipment, including Locomotives 40 and 91, and the wrecking crane. There is also a month dedicated to the official shop mascot, Dirt the Cat.
