North Platte Rail Days

America's Premiere Rail Celebration!

Rail Days will be held on Friday, August 4th-Sunday, August 6th in 2023!

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 held annually in early August. 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.

As plans are underway for the festival, we can assure you a weekend of celebrating our Rail Road history with our hard working community and organizations.

Experience two days of Union Pacific Railroad Bailey Yard tours. There are no reservations needed for the tours, however those with a VIP passes will have the first right to enter the bus. All tours are 1 to 1.5 hours long. There will also kids events, a model train show, and more! The full schedule of events is coming soon!
