Golden Spike CentennialThe golden spike was driven to mark the completion of the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway on July 29, 1900. It was the beginning of a fully integrated rail transportation system - which grew to include lakes & river steamboats, stage lines, aircraft, bus lines, trucks and container ships.
One hundred years later - on July 29, 2000 a new ceremonial spike was driven to honor the courage and dedication that built the first northern railway and to pledge a commitment to a second century of service.
