Nestled in the fields of middle America, you will find miles and miles of tracks and trains at the world’s largest classification rail yard, Bailey Yard. Just like it was when you were a kid, trains are taken apart…put back together and sent on their way to a new destination, from this central Union Pacific rail yard. Guinness Book of Records deemed Bailey Yard as the largest rail yard in the world, based by pure size and volume, of nearly 150 trains and up 10,000 railcars each day passing through. Bailey Yard privately owned company by Union Pacific and closed to the public, but is a must see for any train enthusiast. The Golden Spike Tower is a non-profit, eight story tower overlooking this enormous rail yard, with panoramic views of rail cars, tracks and operations of Union Pacific. Just as the rails are open 365 days a year, the Golden Spike Tower is only closed for Easter and Christmas, otherwise open daily for guests to visit and overlook this awe struck view. Plenty of room for buses, motor homes and cars with special attention given to pre-booked bus tours. The low admission fee, clean bathrooms and personable staff offer this unique location as a perfect added value stop to where ever you are going! Special events offered monthly, including sunset tours on the third Saturday of each month, ability for catered meals, handcar races in September, pumpkin patch in October and more.
