Union Pacific Railroad Bailey Yard
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 September 2013

I saw a train with a caboose. It was red. What was on the train? Nothing. Except the last four cars before the caboose were carrying radioactive material in damaged containment vessels. There was about ten UP vehicles travelling along with the train at a distance, for security, I guess.
The "Golden Spike" tower looks like a prison gaurd tower. The whole place is dirty and ugly. Kind of like the rest of North Platte.

We loved the older and younger gentlemen who were at the top of the 8 story tower to answer any questions and point out the various aspects of the Yard.....this exhibit should not be missed.

What can I say? This is the largest UP yard in the US, so the action is nonstop. Be sure to check out the adjacent Golden Spike Tower for an elevated view of all the action.

If you like big time railroading this is the place to see. Over 7 miles long and close to a mile wide at it's widest point. Well over 200 miles of track in the whole facility. The diesel shop is easily viewed from front road and you can watch the eastbound hump from front road. Another great place to watch is from birdwood crossing on the west end of the yard.
