Trains, and the Bailey Train yard in North Platte, NE

Here's some pictures from the 'trains' category from our short vacation. This is the "Golden Spike Tower", where you can go to the 7th floor and look at the massive train yard in the open (no windows, etc.). The 8th floor in the tower is enclosed, but windows on all sides make for a great view.
This is the diesel shop, where the engines are repaired, updated, etc.
This is the switch engine, one of the only engines in the yard with a real person inside the engine to maneuver it.
This strip of engines (on the right, past the little switch engine) had come out of the diesel shop, and two weeks later ended up in Boone!
Where there are two train guys, there is train 'talk'!
