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.

You can view it from a high platform four miles west of town.
