Dear Fellow Railfan,

This May marks 150 years since history was made in Salt Lake City, Utah, when the famous Golden Spike united a nation. Connecting the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads, the Transcontinental Railroad was born, and changed not only the landscape of rail, but the very face of the country. Celebrate this momentous event in rail history with some of our fabulous new items, including beautiful work by acclaimed artist Gil Bennet, a wonderful book detailing the lead up to the Golden Spike ceremony, and a transcontinental train set!

You can also find more items celebrating other famous anniversaries (including Woodstock, the mood landing, D-Day, and more!) on pages 51 and 52, new HO vehicle kits on page 35, and many new books and videos on pages 28 and 29. So, flip through and choose your favorites! Then call us toll free at 800-989-1945, mail in the order form provided, or place your order online at MilitaryIssue.com. Thanks for shopping with us! – Greg Herrick On the Cover: LIMITED EDITION

Dot. Dot. Dot. Done!

Gil Bennet. Four years after the Civil War, the United States is joined from coast to coast by a transcontinental railroad, as financier and former California Governor Leland Stanford drives a single golden spike into the final tie with a silver hammer. The rail lines from east and west were joined, and a single word signals to the rest of the country the momentous occasion: “DONE!” This beautiful giclee commemorates this historic event with artwork by Gil Bennet. 24"x 16".
