National Train Day is a holiday started by Amtrak in 2008 as a method to spread information to the general public about the advantages of railway travel and the history of trains in the United States.

Held each year on the Saturday closest to May 10th, the anniversary of the pounding of the Golden spike in Promontory, Utah which marked the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in the US.

To celebrate National Train Day, the Billings Depot is preparing an afternoon celebration on May 12. The event will take place at the Depot and offer activities for train enthusiasts of all ages.
