Starting October 9, 2012, the locomotives are kept in the Engine
Locomotive runs will be held on a daily basis, starting the first of May. These runs will include arrivals of the Jupiter and 119 at 10:00 and 10:30 AM, steam demonstrations of both locomotives at 1:00 PM, and departures of the 119 and Jupiter at 4:00 and 4:30 PM. Golden Spike NHS is located in the Mountain Time Zone and honors Daylight Savings Time. Throughout the summer season, the Jupiter and 119 receive scheduled boiler washes on the first and last Tuesdays of each month, except for July when the maintenance will occur on the 10th, due to the 4th of July holiday. This scheduled maintenance prevents one of the locomotives from being available for public viewing throughout that day and part of the following Wednesday. Click the link for exact dates.*
