  1. I live in UK and am doing several rail-tours in USA between 23 August and 15 October 2019., visiting Salt Lake City mid September 2019. As I do not have my own transport, is it possible to visit the Golden Spike location by public transport or by a local bus/coach tour?
    I appreciate that all the celebrations, in May 2019, will have finished by then – will there be much to see during such a visit?


    • Hi Stuart, please contact the Spike 150 team for answers to your questions:
      Thanks, Now Playing Utah


  2. Is there a presentation by a historian made at 10 AM each day? Or is this a display of photos and script that one reads and looks at from 9 AM to 9 PM?


    • Hi Donald, please call the Park City Library for more information on this exhibit: (435) 615-5600
      Thanks, Now Playing Utah
