The Kickoff/Ribbon Cutting for a summer long celebration all about the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. Read more about it at GoldSpike.org. 150 years ago, on May 10, 1869 the Transcontinental Railroad was completed, forever changing the landscape of the Truckee-Donner Summit area. This sesquicentennial of the Transcontinental Railroad marks the spanning of the continent with rails and a revolution to this area and the country. The railroad brought both freight and travelers to Truckee, helped create our local lumber and ice industries, and brought writers and artists to capture the beauty of the area. The Truckee-Donner Summit Historical and Railroad Societies invite you to join us in celebrating this wondrous feat. From May 10th through mid-September enjoy various activities in this area including guided hikes and walking tours, historical talks, train rides, tour of the historical Old Jail and railroad history at the train caboose, and picnic. In addition, Truckee visitors will be able to fill out “railroad passports.” These passports can be stamped at various locations around town. Each location will have a unique stamp thereby encouraging visits to Truckee’s stores and learn about Truckee’s history. To learn more visit https://www.goldspike.org
