Why are two trains about to run into each other on the reverse of a 2007 Utah state quarter?

On May 10, 1869, the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific railroad lines met at Promontory, Utah. Utah's quarter shows two trains meeting at the golden spike before Utah mountains. The moment captured on Utah's quarter truly changed the state and the nation forever!
