Un - Driving of the Golden Spike
Stock #: KB10858
Author: Jeff Terry, Thornton Waite, James Reisdorff

List Price: $24.95
Karen's Price: $21.95

A ceremony that transpired in the high desert region of northern Utah on May 10, 1869, marked the conclusion of the greatest technological achievement of America in the 19th Century. The completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad was celebrated by the driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory Summit.

Seventy Three years later, on September 8, 1942, the Golden Spike was 'Un-driven" at Promontory Summit during an unusual ceremony that largely replicated the original event in reverse. The tracks were then torn up for military use during World War II, whereafter promontory was largely forgotten. This is the illustrated story of the Un-Driving of the Golden Spike in 1942 and the various personalities involved with this unique event. It is also the remarkable story of a century long struggle to have America rediscover the historical significance of Promontory Summit, which culminated in the establishment of today's Golden Spike National Historic Site.

Introductory Offer!!

"Big Boy," the world's largest steam locomotive, is in the news as Union Pacific Railroad plans to restore one of these behemoths to operative condition. In anticipation of the event, this book covers the engine class between 1941 and 1959, when Big Boys were in regular service in Utah and Wyoming. Coverage is mainly given to those eight Big Boys now preserved at museums and municipalities across the U.S. This pictorial examines how Big Boys were extensively documented by both professional and amateur railroad photographers who came to the Wasatch Mountains and Sherman Hill to see big UP steam before it was "too late." The book shows some of the best action photography taken of Big Boy as provided from the collection of UP rail historian James L. Ehernberger. Also included is information about the photographers, critiques of their images and a descriptive year-by-year time line of Big Boy operations. Soft cover. more»
