National Train Day

On May 10, 1869, in Promontory Summit, Utah, the "golden spike" was driven into the final tie that joined 1,776 miles of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railways, ceremonially creating the nation′s first transcontinental railroad. National Train Day was first celebrated on May 10, 2008 to commemorate the 139th anniversary of this historic event.
