North Platte Rail Days
America's Premiere Rail Celebration!
Where would you expect to find the greatest rail celebration in the world? Why, at the home of the world’s largest rail yard! The Golden Spike Tower and Visitor Center invites you to North Platte to experience our incredible railroad heritage September 21 – 23, 2018. Rail Days is the one and only time throughout the year when visitors can experience Bailey Yard up-close-and-personal with a motorcoach tour through the yard. Also included in Rail Days is a railroad-themed murder mystery, railroad machinery and equipment exhibits throughout Cody Park, a full day of fun kids activities, and a huge model railroad show. You’ll also be able to experience one of America’s most heartwarming railroad stories – how the Union Pacific delivered six million service men and women to the North Platte World War II Canteen.
All new this year is the Thomas the Tank Engine live show and meet and greet scheduled for 1:30pm and 4:00pm at the North Platte High School Performing Arts Center. Tickets are free, but must be held to enter the show
