Bailey Yard

Big Yellow

Union Pacific’s Bailey Yard in North Platte, NE, is the world’s largest freight classification yard. Since my boys like trains, it seemed a logical place to stop and take in the view on our way through Nebraska. This is only the eastbound segment; out of frame right is the westbound “bowl” into which cars are sorted, and the receiving/departure tracks stretch for miles out of sight in either direction.
