    Hey guys. I really like Bailey yard and wanted to know if anyone had an pictures of some of the shops on the outside and the setup of the fueling etc. I really like trains but I am limited with space and money (only 15) so I have decided to model little parts of bailey yard with the intent of connecting them all one day and making a true HO scale Bailey yard with all the fixins! Any help is hreatly apprecited.

    Ben:wav: , i hope your related to Bill Gates, to do ALL of Bailey yard in HO you would have to be a millionaire:119: . UP's Bailey yard is the LARGEST classification yard...IN THE WORLD:eeki: . its 2,850 acres big:eeki: , has 315 miles of track:eeki: , it would hold 2,800 football Fields!:eeki::eeki::eeki: .

    my best advice, check out the "sky maps" and pick a section:winki: .

    How did you find out I was Bill Gates?? :curse: :mrgreen: j/k

    I have looked at maps and I would like to make one of the hump calssification yards and add in the shops and facilities. That is what I want ground pics. I have a good idea from google earth. But I want a little more detail so I can get it right! Yes its ambitious but I am going to do small 12 x 24 or 24x24" sections at a time.

    Not a lot of good shots there, but you can see a couple buildings in the background of a couple of the pics.

    the problem with getting picks of the inside of that yard is, they just don't let anybody in there, if you don't work there, your pretty much out of luck:frowns: . try googleing Bailey yard, and just start hitting all the links, might have some luck there:rolleyes: .

    i have the DVD "UNION PACIFIC super railroad"(vol.1) , its put out by green frog, they have a WHOLE SECTION on Bailey yard in it:mrgreen: , might be well worth you buying a copy of it, check out Green Frogs website:winki: .
