Larry Tiffany's Union Pacific South Platte Division
21 ft x 31 ft

The UP South Platte Division is a free-lanced Union Pacific line running from Council Bluffs to Cheyenne.

The layout is operated as a 1968 To a 1985 era layout with lots of large or unique UP power on the trains. South Platte is my version of North Platte and is the main focal point of the railroad. Southern Pacific had run thru trains to North Platte and Council Bluffs and my railroad has Southern pacific power on some trains as well.

During a session, seven westbound trains and seven eastbound trains run the layout, along with two locals. A dispatcher sits just off the railroad room. Car cards and waybills are used.
