Day 2 North Platte, NE

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Had our flu shots today! They would have been free in Canada but we missed them, but did get a discount here at Walmart and paid $22.97 each- so we're all set with that.
Today also went to see the Bailey Yard and Golden Spike Tower. This rail yard is the biggest classification yard in the world. Thought Gerry may like it since he used to work with rail cars at his job before he retired.

Owned and operated by Union Pacific Railroad, it sorts and services locomotives and rail cars headed across North America. 

Covering 2850 acres- it's over 8 miles long and 2 miles wide. And an average of 14,000 rail cars pass through here everyday. 
Admission: $7 per adult
