Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday


The Evansville Museum's Transportation Center...

is full of special surprises! This plaque commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the completion of connecting railroads across the United States in Utah on 10 May 1869. This golden stake was pinned on 10 May 1969 right here in Evansville.
Click on photos for larger images. Below is a closer look at the spike.
The plaque is right in front of this Engine 1416 at the museum. If trains interest you, Evansville Museum is a place to visit!
