Golden Spike 150th Anniversary Celebration

07:00 AM - 06:00 PM Central Standard Time

Promontory Summit Event - UTA providing bus for WTS members.

When gold was discovered in California in 1848, only two routes to the west were available: by wagon across the plains or by ship around South America. Traveling either of these could take four months or more to complete. The completion of the transcontinental railroad at Promontory Summit, Utah on May 10, 1869, created a boom of trade, business, and population and made reliable transportation possible coast to coast. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of this historic event in transportation, WTS is sponsoring a day trip to the Sesquicentennial Celebration and Festival. Space is limited for this once-in-a-lifetime event, so don’t wait to sign up!

Utah Transit Authority has generously provided transportation to and from the event at Promontory Summit. Traffic is limited in the area due to the large numbers of people expected to attend, so attending with WTS may be your only opportunity as we have obtained an entrance pass. Tickets are only $20 to reserve your spot. Limited to first 12 people who sign up.

When: Friday, May 10, 2019

Depart 6:00 am meet at UTA, 669 West 200 South, Salt Lake City

Return: Depart at 3:00 PM; Return by 5:00 PM

Cost: $20 (covers fuel and tip for driver)
