Random Pictures

Well, here are a few new random pictures.

The first few are the Golden Spike National Monument.  For those outside of Utah, this is where the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads met, linking North America’s east and west for the first time!  Here are a few views.

The first is a old style switch.

Here’s the old 119.  Every 15 years or so, they do a complete tear down.  This is the inside of the engine.
