The Golden Spike Chapter is part of the national organization Railway & Locomotive Historical Society. We generally meet every 4th Tuesday at the Ogden Union Station, 2501 Wall Ave., Ogden, Utah. Besides our major project restoring the D&RGW #223, we work closely with the Ogden Union Station Foundation in their efforts to operate and maintain the Utah State Railroad Museum.

The current major project of the GSR&LHS is the restoration of
D&RGW #223
Work sessions are held every Saturday beginning around 9 a.m. Public and volunteer workers are welcome.

Join us on Saturday mornings by walking behind the Ogden Union Station to the north end of the building
to the restoration shop. Just come in and introduce yourself.

Restoring the 223 is a costly venture. So far we have been fortunate to have businesses and interested individuals who have donated funds and services towards our efforts. More is needed as we prepare to finish the tender with interior coating and exterior painting. A major expense will involve the rebuild of the locomotive. The donate button below is provided for anyone who wishes to contribute to the restoration of 223." />" quality="high" flashVars="page=D-RGW223&template=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="258" height="338">
