The Golden Spike

Words and Music by Laurie Draper

Climb aboard… and join the adventure of “The Golden Spike.” The building of the transcontinental railroad was one of the greatest achievements of the American people in the 19th century.  The railroad took brains, muscle and sweat, and team-work, never before put into a single project.

This musical adventure, filled with seven fun-filled original songs, is the story of two teams racing to the finish line as the Central and Union Pacific used vision, courage, and unprecedented engineering, to build the transcontinental railroad – connecting sea to shining sea.  Railroad workers proved that neither mountains, nor snows, nor deserts could keep the country from going forward, full steam ahead!   All Aboard!
