Remarks & Notes 
Ready to rock Promontory Summit! With the morning preparations just about complete, the two "Golden Spike" engines have emerged from their quarters, pausing briefly in the yard to load wood on the Jupiter, before heading down to the last spike site, where a large crowd awaits.

The Jupiter and 119 replica locomotives "live" in a modern, well-equipped, two-stall engine house, which is located perhaps half a mile east of the last spike site. Here, the engines are sheltered from the elements year-round, and maintained both by local crews (for normal maintenance) and by contractors (for heavier maintenance.) Both stalls have servicing pits, and are surrounded by shop facilities and offices. Although the facility is typically closed to visitors when the locomotives are out and about, the staff does allow visits when the engines are inside.
