North Platte – 50 by 50

44 out of 50

This is State #44. Getting close man. yeah, getting close.

Union Pacific’s Bailey Yard

Interesting place this Bailey Yard place. The largest yard in the world, this is where east meets west. Not the Asian East and European West. American east meets west, right in the middle of Nebraska. They handle about 10,000 cars every single day. I spent about 30 minutes observing it from the Golden Spike Tower. At first didn’t really get what was going on, but 5-10 minutes into it I saw them getting pushed into different tracks, all seems like using just normal gravity. Stop by in North Platte Nebraska and see it too.
