Adrian Brodie sent in this great photograph of the Big Boy at the Utah State Railroad Museum.
He said: “Already in the US, we extended our stay to be able to go to Utah for the week of 6-13 May, during which time, the first Golden Spike celebration occurred at Utah State Railroad Museum (Ogden Union Station) on 9 May, followed the following day, with the “full” celebration at Promontary Summit. Both of which, we attended.”
“But, we enjoyed chasing the Big Boy on its final day, into Ogden, starting at Wasatch, as seen in the photo.”
