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.
