Unused vintage Transcontinental Railroad 75th Anniversary postage stamps from 1944 featuring the 'Golden Spike' ceremony at Promontory, Utah, where the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads came together in 1869 to establish a transcontinental link. Face value is 3¢ each.
On May 10, 1869, the Transcontinental Railroad was completed with the driving of the golden spike at Promontory Summit, Utah. Talks about a railroad spanning America began as early as 1832, when Dr. Hartwell Carver suggested one from Lake Michigan to Oregon. Congress began to seriously consider the idea in the late 1840s, following the discovery of gold in California.
