The "Jupiter", an American locomotive of the type 4-4-0, has great historical importance due to its role in the realization of the first transcontinental railroad in the United States.
Property of the Central Pacific Railroad, it was built in September 1868 by the Schenectady Locomotive Workshops of New York, along with three other locomotives; Storm, Leviathan and Whirlwindel.
The "Jupiter" weighed 65,400 pounds, had 60-inch pinch rollers, 16-inch by 24-inch cylinders.
It used wood for fuel and generated a tractive force of 10,790 pounds.
Today, an exact replica of the Jupiter locomotive can be found at the Golden Spike National in Promontory Summit, Utah.
It is famous for being considered the place where the first transcontinental railroad in the United States was completed.
