This tells about the railroad yard and visitors' center at North Platte, Nebraska. It's really quite interesting and I learned several new things, even after living here nearly 23 years and writing numerous stories about the railyards.

This was a video that only a train geek could love.

It certainly is - that's why I put enthusiasts in the title because they know who they are. I am not really enthused about trains that much, but it is certainly a huge part of this community's life.

They have a 3-day celebration in September - Railfest - and thousands of people from all over the country and many foreign countries come to the celebration because that's the one time the public can tour the facility.

Interesting video. I grew up with the NYC switchyards behind my house in Toledo. Used to watch the steam engines earlier and lived there through the transition period from steam to diesel electric. The old puffers were more fun to watch though.
