The truth about these revolutionary machines is the secret romance of it all. The words Steam Engine Locomotive always inspire my heart to whisper back: Choo choo train! That’s followed immediately by the traveler’s desire to pack a bag and explore somewhere new. Imagine taking that magic with you everywhere?
The entire nation banded together in their excitement for the Transcontinental Railroad. The golden spike driven into a tie of California laurel, uniting two railroads and joining two coasts into a single county. Even the visionaries of the day would be shocked at the American story that unfolded from that moment.
This romantic steam engine locomotive charm measures approximately 20 mm long. That translates to .75 inches including the bail and it weighs 5 grams. This piece is tested to confirm .925 silver content. It was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips were used.
