NOTICE:  Our Annual Train Show, which we’ve presented every November for the last nine years, has been cancelled for 2019, due to the lack of an affordable venue.  We regret any inconvenience, and are looking into the possibility of scheduling a show in January 2020.     We’ll keep you posted.


On May 6th, the N Scale Division of the GSMRR had a Golden Spike Ceremony to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Completion of the Transcontinental Railroad.  Thanks to Ed Sharett for the great photo.

On May 9th, the Union Pacific is had a similar ceremony in Ogden, Utah with the full size prototypes of these two steam locomotives. The recently restored Big Boy UP #4014 in this ceremony is the largest steam locomotive ever to run on US rails. 

On May 10, the Golden Spike Ceremony was reenacted at Promontory Point, Utah, with full size replicas of the 1880’s 4-4-0 Atlantic locomotives used in the original 1869 ceremony.
