Nebraska Home to World’s Largest Rail Yard

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Motorhome travelers crossing “the Cornhusker State” of Nebraska can take a break from their Interstate 80 drive with a stop in North Platte, a town that serves up a bird’s-eye view of the world’s largest rail yard. From the eight-story-high Golden Spike Tower, look out over Union Pacific Railroad’s Bailey Yard, which handles 10,000 railcars and locomotives each day. Experience the sights and sounds from the seventh floor open-air platform or watch the action from the eighth story enclosed viewing deck. The Golden Spike Tower also offers historical displays and exhibits, including a new Hall of Fame with displays and artifacts from key players in the history of North Platte and the Union Pacific Railroad, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary.
