The White Pass and Yukon Railway was originally constructed to carry freight and passengers bound for the Klondike Goldfields. This line wound its way from tidewater at Skagway, Alaska, through what was then seemingly insurmountable mountains, and eventually on to Whitehorse, which is now the capital of the Yukon Territory.
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the construction of this railway, the Technical Education students at F.H. Collins Secondary School in Whitehorse, Yukon have prepared for sale a most unique gift and souvenir opportunity. An actual spike used in this narrow-gauge railway has been mounted on a plaque machined in the outline of the Yukon Territory. The plaque has been made from genuine Yukon pine which comes from the very stands of timber used to construct the original railway. The plaque bears a clear oil finish, while the spike has been blued and sprayed with a protective finish. The plaque face also bears a unique commemorative medallion. The reverse side of each plaque is personalized, bearing the owner's name.
