  • Wash out on West Auto Tour

    In August 2014 Golden Spike National Historic Site had a large amount of rain fall in a short period of time. This rainfall caused flooding which washed out a portion of the historic grade. This damage has resulted in early closure of the West Auto Tour.

Things To Do

Locomotives are kept in the Engine House during Winter months (September through April).
Stop by the Visitor Center and discover how you can see the beautiful replica locomotives in the Engine House during our winter season. While visiting, you may also find out how you can help keep the 119 and Jupiter up and running, by asking our park staff about our volunteer program.
