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!

There are several Historic trains that run near here.. I know one is coal burning if it is still running.. Lancaster, Pa has two..Old Cabooses have been turned in to restaurants !

I hope that someday you can find all the cabooses! xx

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!!

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
