Plenty of power is gathered around the fuel racks at the North Platte Diesel Facility as the yard lights begin to fight the encroaching darkness. Even though night has fallen, Union Pacific's Bailey Yard never stops, evidenced by the auto racks rolling down into the East Hump bowl tracks at right. A CSX unit is the lone interloper in a sea of Armour Yellow at the fuel racks. This September 2008 view was made possible thanks to the then newly-opened, eight-story Golden Spike Tower, which provides two observation decks to view the yard action.
