I experienced a “Duh” moment during Dave Harrold’s news conference this morning. Dave said, “The Spike Tower is not a tourist attraction. Bailey Yards is the attraction. The Spike is a way to view the yard.” “Duh.” People don’t come to North Platte to see the Spike they come to see the Railroad and Bailey Yards. The Spike helps them experience the Railroad and the yards. The Spike may provide the best way to view the yards and the Railroad. But the yards are the attraction! It’s a mistake for me to confuse the two.
