There are few railroads that evoke the legends of early American Railroading as do those that were joined at Promontory, Utah by the epochal driving of the Golden Spike.  The UP formed the eastern portion of that historic union, and its story has grown with that of the US itself..Much has happened in the history of the UP, from the days of Grenville Dodge to the new expansions of the 1980s, the history has been long, but never uninteresting, progression toward challenges of the future.
