Wash out on West Auto Tour

Golden Spike National Historic Site is pleased to celebrate the holiday season by hosting it's annual Winter Steam Festival.
This event gives visitors a chance to see one of our locomotives in action, at the same spot where the transcontinental railroad was completed over 144 years ago. Visitors can also take opportunities to explore the railroad museum, watch films, and participate in other special events not regularly offered throughout the winter season.
