It's a switching yard for the Union Pacific, If you're interested in trains then here is the place for you. You can watch thousands of car and engines get "switched" daily as they continue on their merry way to parts unknown.

While we really aren't railway buffs, the enthusiasm of the interpretive guides was contagious. Many of the gentlemen had... 更多
