Here’s your opportunity to sit back and enjoy an entire day’s activity at what some say is the busiest all-freight railroad junction in the world – Union Pacific’s Gibbon Junction. Fifteen hours of incredible train watching have been condensed into 73 action-packed minutes featuring 73 different trains! Located twenty-nine miles west of Grand Island, Nebraska, and fourteen miles east of Kearney, Gibbon Junction is the meeting point for Union Pacific’s Marysville Subdivision and the east/west Nebraska Division mainline.

Pentrex arrived on the scene before sunrise on a long summer’s day in 1997. The first movement was captured 6:10 AM and our day ended at 9:00 PM – seventy-three trains later! Freight, coal, and intermodal trains and local freights all make an appearance. Great weather, a fantastic mix of equipment, and the sheer volume of trains combine to bring you a remarkable video experience. Train symbols with origins and destinations are shown for most movements, as well as the time of day and other statistics. Join us at Gibbon Junction, from sunrise to sunset!

    Although not a big fan of run-by videos. This is an exception. This was film during a time that UP had an interesting assortment of motive power. Great narration and a diagram are included. I would suggest this video to anyone.

    Even though its a little dated now but really shows how many trains go through this junction in a single day. Do a good job with narration and giving each trains symbol.
