what a great place and well done also. The one disappointment was that for all the rail cars that they say go in/out every day, there seemed to be very limited activity. If you are from NE, it is amazing in the west/Midwest to see all the railways. This exhibit puts it all together. A great addition would be a... More

It's a switching yard for the Union Pacific, If you're interested in trains then here is the place for you. You can watch thousands of car and engines get "switched" daily as they continue on their merry way to parts unknown.

Me I was bored but my husband loved this place. There were people who volunteer at this Railroad yard and they were full of information and more than willing to share there knowledge with you. It was a good time for me to catch up on some texting, email, and pictures. We were on vacation and this was a place... More

This was one of the most interesting stops. The Tower allows one to see the amazing amount of train cars in the yard and the way they are sorted.

The rail yard is very breathtaking. There are so many types, styles, sizes, and shapes of trains. I'm not a collector and don't have a huge interest in trains but this is amazing to see!

If you like trains this is a must. Worlds biggest rail yard. The Golden Spike tower is a fantastic place to see it all.

This is the worlds largest hump yard. It isn't very accessible to the public, but you can see quite a bit of it from the Golden Spike Tower. It is a very busy place and a lot of trains moving, coming and going.

We did not realize this attraction was located here and were only alerted by the woman at the rest stop on the Interstate. It was raining, so we almost didn't stop. However, since hubby is a train fanatic we stopped regardless. The Golden Spike tower was well worth the price and gave a wonderful panoramic view. The retired railroad man... More
