LGB 29000 - Lokset "150 years Golden Spike"

PLEASE NOTE: The Golden Spike set can only be paid by bank transfer or if you pick up the set at the store by cash payment.

When the first American railroads went into operation, the Americans could already imagine a transcontinental connection by train. This idea soon won more and more
adherents. At the start of the American Civil War in 1861, there were already 31,000 miles / 50,000 kilometers of lines in the eastern states – more than in Europe at that time. Only
a very small part were located west of the Missouri. A railroad line bridging the continent promised many advantages, such as an expansion of trade, a shortening of the travel
time for immigrants, and support for the army in keeping enemy Indians under control.
In 1862, Congress therefore approved construction of a transcontinental railroad connection. The “Central Pacific” was to go east from Sacramento and the “Union Pacific”
was to go west from Omaha.

May 10, 1869, the Central Pacific’s “Jupiter” and the Union Pacific’s road number 119 came together. The tracks were symbolically joined together by a
golden track spike, which was immediately replaced by an iron one.
On May 10 2019 it will be time 150 years of transcontinental railroading.
.

The “Central Pacific” had ultimately built 690 and the “Union Pacific” 1,086 miles of the transcontinental line that now linked East and West with each other
