National Train Day in the U.S. celebrates the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad at Promontory Summit, Utah. In honor of the importance of railroads, there are train-related events throughout the country.

Visitors can tour several private railcars rarely open to the public. National Train Day guests can blow the horn on a diesel locomotive, and might even get the opportunity to blow the whistle on Chandler’s #2562 steam locomotive.
