About

The city of North Platte traces its beginnings to railroading, which in 1863 stretched its iron rails across the prairies to complete the nation's first transcontinental railroad.

North Platte is home to the largest railroad classification yard in the world and still expanding. Union Pacific's Baily Yard employs over 2,500 men and women, covers 2,850 acres and switches 10,000 railcars daily. The main rail line through North Platte is the busiest rail freight corridor in the nation, with more than 135 trains operating over the line every 24 hours.

Volunteers are needed at the Golden Spike, to serve as greeters, to answer questions, give tours of the Golden Spike facility and assist in the gift shop.
