In Railroad Hall at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, Lucy tries to take a photograph of her friends only to find she has become Andrew Russell, preparing to take the famous 1869 photograph of the driving of the golden spike into the last rail of the first Transcontinental Railroad. As she works, she listens to amazing accounts of this engineering feat that linked by rail the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
