If you think the transcontinental railroad was completed at Promontory Point, Utah, you've been had! While the Utah site is the place where the rails of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads met, the actual completion of the transcontinental line didn't occur until August 15, 1870 in Strasburg, Colorado.

Don't believe me? Read the straight dope from Roadside America.
