We had the best time viewing the worlds largest rail yard located in North Platte, Nebraska. We drove an hour from our campground but it was worth the trip. This classification yard handles 10,000 cars per day (24/7) in this 8 mile long almost 3,000 acre Union Pacific Railroad facility. Each rail car is “humped” to its proper track to be coupled up with others to go to its final destination. Watch the YouTube link for the story of this fascinating place and what happens in the yard. Mick, a retired railroad man, was a wealth of information about both railroading and the Sandhills which he loves.
