The Jupiter was an American locomotive of the 4-4-0 type, and is historically important because of the role that it played in the first American transcontinental railway line. This train was owned by the Central Pacific Railroad, and was built in 1868 by the Schenectady Locomotive Works of New York. It was constructed along with three other locomotives: Storm, Leviathan and Whirlwind. The Jupiter weighed 65,400 pounds, and had 60-inch driving wheels and cylinders measuring 16 by 24 inches. It was also a wood-burning locomotive and generated a traction force of 10,790 pounds. Currently, an exact replica of the locomotive Jupiter is located in the Golden Spike National, at Promontory Summit, Utah. It is famous for being considered the place that completed the first transcontinental railroad in the United States. At Ages of Sail, our model kits are always of the highest quality available, with precision-cut parts and ornamentation made from the finest materials for an authentic look.
