Part two of our series on Union Pacific's Sidney Subdivision in Nebraska covers the eastern half of the line between Sidney and North Platte.
The double track main line follows Lodgepole Creek and the historic Lincoln Highway (US 30) through charming small towns including Lodgepole, Chappell, and Julesburg (Colorado). It takes a new course following the South Platte River through the famous western town of Ogallala as it heads to its final destination of Bailey Yard at North Platte.
Monster manifests pushing three miles long ply the rails along with hot-shot Z trains running expedited merchandise across the Corn Husker State, plus coal trains, stack trains, auto racks and more. Our tour coincided with Union Pacific Big Boy number 4014's run across Nebraska on its Summer 2021 Tour and we will take you trackside for the action.
Our program concludes with fantastic views of Bailey Yard, the largest railroad classification yard in the world. Scenes from the air and the Golden Spike Tower help bring the scope of this operation to the big screen.
