    As many of you may know by now, the Utah quarter design has been picked. I personally don't think that they could have picked a better design, and what a perfect day to announce the selection, the 137th anniversary of the golden spike.

    I was fortunate enough to attend this event, and once again see these wonderful locomotives. It was a great time, and I couldn't think of a better way to spend a nice summer day.

    Cool!! My wife and I have been putting together a small book of the state quarters for a keepsake. It will be neat to have at least one coin featuring trains!!

    Awesome photos. Are those locomotives the originals or reproductions? In either case they look splendid.

    Unfortunately for some, the day didn't end very well. Apparently after the conclusion of the second reenactment, the two locomotives collided with each other. :curse: I am kicking myself as this occured when I decided to go and explore the area. I was a couple of miles away on the CP grade when this happend. As unfortunate as this was, I would have still liked to have been there to snap a couple of pics.

    Stuart, they are reproductions, as the originals were scrapped a long time ago.
