The History Behind the Design: Pen Chalet’s #119 Train Retro
The exclusive Retro 51 #119 Train pen is inspired by one of two trains at the momentous Golden Spike Ceremony that celebrated one of the most historic moments in railroading history: the moment the Jupiter train pulled in to Promontory Point from the West as the #119 train pulled in from the East to complete the 1st transcontinental railroad. The historic event was commemorated in the now well-known Golden Spike Ceremony.
A Little Bit About the Retro 51 #119 Train Pen Design:
The stainless steel barrel and trademarked knurl twist-top are well-loved elements of the popular Retro 51 pen design. This exclusive features a red and black train design in a nod to the famous train that rolled in to Promontory Point from the East, the #119. Train details are etched into the barrel’s design featuring classic elements including the cow catcher, the wheels, and the iconic bell. The train’s number, #119, is also included in the design both near the pen tip and again to the side of the pen clip.
