Golden Spike Tower & Visitor Center, North Platte, Nebraska




"Golden Spike Tower & Visitor Center", North Platte, Nebraska. (quoting from the brochure) "Experience a panoramic view Union Pacific's Bailey Yard --The World's Largest Rail Yard. It's where east meets west on the Union Pacific line, and where 10,000 cars are hauled each day on 2,850 acres of land stretching out eight miles."


It was so cool to see this in person. If you know me, You know I love trains. Anything having to do with trains. I'm there. Train sounds, model trains, real trains, train horns, train tracks, I want to be a caboose rider, but they don't do cabooses any more. Please some one tell me where are all the cabooses hiding? Is there a graveyard for all the train cabooses? I would love to see that. I love the coal burning trains, but that is not the norm these days. Please enjoy the vlog from that day. Beth ( :

Have you seen the movie Snowpiercer? The last of humanity fights it out on a train that keeps circling a frozen world, year after year. It's really good. Thanks so much for your blog visits. Happy New Year!

Beth, I'm with you on the trains. Love them. When I was 18 I rode from Illinois to California to go to college on the Santa Fe Line from Peoria, IL. From then on, I was in love. Have a special week!

I know where two cabooses are. One is parked where a heritage train runs on weekends throughout the summer and it needs a lot of repairs. Another is painted yellow and is an attraction behind a restaurant on a busy road. I used to have photos of both of them but sadly I lost them a while ago when my computer crashed. I tihnk that's a good excuse to go take ne wpictures of them, don't you?

I am right there with you on the trains. I am so lucky to have a park close to home with a train ride running year round. Pretty images, I like the tower against the bright and beautiful blue sky!!
