Photographer's Note

...."Bailey Yard"....

This was taken from the new "Golden Spike Tower" in North Platte, Nebraska, USA.
The Golden Spike Tower is an 8-story tower with a 360 degree outdoor panoramic view
of the Platte River Valley and the Union Pacific Railroad Company's over $100 Million
...."Bailey Yard"...., constructed in 1968 and enlarged in 1980 and covers 2,850 acres.

...."Bailey Yard"...., is the world's largest railyard. Everyday 10,000 + cars are sorted on a
maze of 315 miles of track. This composition shows you the refueling station for the engines.

..."Bailey Yard".... is located 60 miles west of our home and the tower offers a unique
POV for the photographer, the yard functions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week everyday
of the year. The operators of the tower are planning a night opening which will offer an
amazing photographic opportunity.
I am going to mix a little new (yet rural) USA in with old (rural) USA for variety within my gallery.

Thanks to everyone for looking in.
