The First U.S. Transcontinental Railroad Was Completed This Day 148 Years Ago — On May 10, 1869.

The fateful joining up of the ‘Central Pacific’ and ‘Union Pacific’ railroads at Promontory Summit, in Utah.

I have read a bit about the building of the ‘Central Pacific’ and it is beyond fascinating. What a story.

148-years ago. A few years after the ending of the Civil War.

Worth spending a few seconds today thinking about this.

Strange that Google has NEVER done a Doodle for this!
