This museum (housed with the Browning Gun Museum at Ogden's historic Union Station) is well worth the trip. If you are going to go to Golden Spike from Salt Lake City, make sure to stop in and go through this museum, which basically completes the story that the exhibits at Golden Spike start, complete with working model railroads of the various sections of the transcontinental ralroad, historic photos, commentary, and actual trails out in the yard. If you are an engine fanatic, this will be your favorite place, with a good group of the big engines that have been built over the past 100 years for use in the Rocky mountains and some very unusual specially built railroad cars. Good information and they did a very good job on the role of Chinese labor in the building of the railroad.
