Centennial #6922 is on display at the railroad display within Cody
Park, on the north side of North Platte, Nebraska. Cody Park is named
after William F. Cody, also known as Buffalo Bill. The railroad display
is on the far east end of the park. Also on display is a Challenger
steam locomotive. The museum is open May through September. In this case,
I arrived a little after closing time when it was near dark, but I was still
able to get a reasonable photograph.
North Platte is home of Bailey Yard, the largest railroad classification
yard in the world. The complex covers 2,850 acres and stretches over 8
miles in length. The yard handles about 500 rail cars per hour, dispatches
about 300 locomotives a day, and repairs about 750 locomotives per month.
