Locomotive Operations

Locomotives at Last Spike Site
Union Pacific #119 steams down the tracks.

Locomotive runs will be held Wednesday through Sunday, starting the first week of May 2016 through at least the first part of July. These runs will include the arrival of the Jupiter at 10:00 AM and the arrival of the 119 at 10:30 AM, a steam demonstration run at 1:00 PM, and the departure of the Jupiter at 4:00 Pm and the departure of the 119 at 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 during the first and last week of each month. This scheduled maintenance prevents one of the locomotives from being available for public viewing throughout that day and part of the following day. The exact days of the boiler wash can be seen by following this link.*

Starting mid-October , the locomotives are kept in the Engine
House for repairs and maintenance until the 1st week of May throughout our winter season. Engine House Tours are usually available during this winter season at 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. Golden Spike National Historic Site is in the Mountain Time Zone and does honor
Daylight Savings. Please come to the Visitor Center to participate in an
Engine House tour
