May 10, 1869


What was it the Engines said,
Pilots touching,—head to head
Facing on the single track,
Half a world behind each back?

I work only a few miles from Promontory Summit. It looks as bleak now as it did then. It's amazing to think of how the world of transportation has changed over the last 137 years.

Do you think this event will make it on the back of the quarter for Utah? I voted for it. Personally, I thought the beehive design was rather dull, and the snowboarder looked awful... her head looks like a skull.
