The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum celebrates the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike, the realization of President Lincoln’s dream of a transcontinental railroad. The first floor of historic Union Station provides the backdrop for the display from May 10, 2019 – December 31, 2020. Working in partnership with the Springfield Model Railroad Association, a working model railroad brings to life the construction of the rail line and the significance of connecting the United States via rail. Scale models will depict advancements in United States railroad technology since then and will display the impact of railways throughout America’s history.
