The sound of bats overhead really adds to the ambiance. #transcontinentalrailroad #donnersummit

A pyramid on the plains? Was not expecting a 60 foot tall granite pyramid sitting in the middle of the wind-swept Wyoming plains near the Rocky Mountains. Ames Monument was completed in 1882 near the high point of the Transcontinental Railroad (8,247 feet) to recognize the contributions of the Ames Brothers (Oakes and Oliver Ames). The Ames Brothers were businessmen and financiers and instrumental to the building and completion of the railroad •

Tomorrow is his birthday and this is his gift. He’s going to freak out, even I geeked out when I opened the package. The one on the left is the Jupiter, the one he’s going to build. Swipe right to see the historical inspiration for this set up.
And now, a history lesson:
The Jupiter (officially known as Central Pacific Railroad #60) was a 4-4-0 steam locomotive which made history as one of the two locomotives (the other being the Union Pacific No. 119) to meet at Promontory Summit during the Golden Spike ceremony, commemorating the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad.

GE ES44AC 7363 Intermodal starts it's westbound descend
on the original mainline, now track 3, from 1868 (1.92% grade)
together with another couple of GE's towards Laramie, WY.
Shot at the Hermosa crossing just west of the only tunnel which is about 1.800 feet long.

Got to go see history today. This is something I've always wanted to do and see since I've learned about it in school and watching Hell on Wheels, haha. It was neat watching the reenactment of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads meet (watch the video). We even drove on the original Central Pacific grade and saw what people saw riding the rails back in the day! #hellonwheels #ushistory #centralpacific #unionpacific #goldenspike #railroad #transcontinentalrailroad #utah #nothernutah #beaUTAHful #familyday #mygirls #myworld
