This video shows the replica Jupiter locomotive (Central Pacific no. 60), on the railroad tracks by the visitor center in Golden Spike National Historic Site. The train arrives from the nearby engine shed in reverse, then re-approaches from the west, matching the actual direction of the original during the Golden Spike ceremony on May 10th 1869. The other replica locomotive (Union Pacific no. 119) arrives a few minutes later. (mp4; 0:47 min; 12 mb)
