Jupiter of the Central Pacific Railroad was one of the locomotives that met in the 1869 "golden spike" ceremony in Utah, marking completion of America's first transcontinental railroad. However, the original Jupiter was not preserved. The engine masquerading as the historic locomotive is the Virginia & Truckee's Genoa, which was sold in 1939 to the Eastern Railroads Presidents' Conference for this purpose. In 1969 it became the property of the State of California.
