Especially for Andrew Scott, we’re finally posting some trains
Union Pacific’s classification yard in North Platte, Nebraska is the world’s largest railroad classification yard. The yard is made up of 315 miles of track, and up to 10,000 railroad cars are handled here each day. Wikipedia says:
Because of the enormous amount of products traveling through Bailey yard each and every day, the yard is sometimes referred to as being an â€œeconomic barometer of America”
Thanks Jeff Jones and dan.
