Cody Park Railroad Museum
Hands on display of historic railroad artifacts.
For hands-on railroad enthusiasts, the Cody Park Railroad Museum is a must! The only Challenger 3900 series steam locomotive on public display is located right here in North Platte, a city born in 1866 when the Union Pacific stretched its rails across the prairie, racing to complete the first transcontinental railroad. Accompanying the 3977 is Unit 6922, one of the 6900 series diesel locomotives, the largest ever made. These two behemoths have a combined horsepower of more than 12,000! Also to be seen is a fully restored railroad depot, several rail cars and a caboose.
