Tourist & Museum Railways in
Replica locomotives at the Golden Spike National Historic
Site re-enact the 1869 completion ceremony.
- Golden Spike
National Historic Site although it does not offer train rides, this
museum site is included here for its great historic interest. Promontory
is where in 1869 the last spike was driven on the railway which
first made it possible to travel by rail from the East Coast to the
West Coast of the United States. The line was later bypassed (by means
of a long viaduct over the Great Salt Lake), and the original site
is preserved as a memorial. The site is open daily throughout the year
(except for certain holidays). On most days from May to mid October,
exact replicas of the steam locomotives involved in the original
ceremony can be viewed in operation.
- Heber Valley
Railroad Heber City to Viviam Park. Standard gauge, steam or diesel
hauled. Operates most Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year, daily
(except Mondays) from June to Early October, special services on certain
other days, and by private charter.
