Where am I? Originally the site of a Union Pacific construction camp, this Nebraska city nearly expired when the workers decamped for Colorado; but the 300 permanent residents were spared when the railroad chose it as a division point, securing the town's future. The city is still proud of its railyard, recently decreed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest railroad classification yard in the world. You can view it from a high platform four miles west of town.

Point here for Mike Ballou's answer ---> Bailey Yard in North Platte, NE.
