Ogden is north of Salt Lake City and east of the Great Salt Lake, and is the Weber county seat. The U.S. Census Bureau reported a local population of just over 84,000 people in 2014. Railway systems, both national and local have been long important to Odgen’s development and history. To this day, the city still operates with a good deal of rail traffic; it’s a major railway hub. Promontory point, the historic location where the Transcontinental Railroad was joined, is less than an hour (north, mostly) from Ogden.
