Above: The original 223 hat hangs in the locker room of the enginehouse at Golden Spike National Historic Site, Promontory, Utah.
We have hats available! The last two runs (original and 130th anniversary) have long since been sold out, but at the request of several people across the country, we have made another run, this time with "Built 1881" spelled out on either side of the logo.
The hats can be purchased through e-bay for $15.00, plus $5.00 shipping & handling. See pictures here:
Thanks to all those that purchased the last two runs! Remember, all proceeds go directly towards the 223 restoration.
