Promontory golden spike ceremony stereoview

Where can I find a Promontory stereoview showing the May 10, 1869 golden spike ceremony in Utah?

"Social Amusements"

Does anyone know about a paperback book given to passengers on the Chicago and North Western Railway in 1886 titled Social Amusements?

Cars or rolling stock attached to the Jupiter at the golden spike ceremony

From: "Richard Dahl"

I'm retired and to have a keen interest in model railroading so I'm going to build an HO diorama of the Golden Spike Ceremony and I'm try to find out what cars or rolling stock was attached to the Jupiter at the time of the ceremony. I've seen pictures of what looks to be a box car and coach also a picture supposedly of the Jupiter on its way to the ceremony with a water car, box car and coach.

Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. ...
