Here are two sentences off their webpage: "Covering a massive 2,850 acres, each day Bailey Yard manages 10,000 railroad cars. Of those, 3,000 are sorted to make sure the cargo reaches its final destination." The yard reaches an unbelievable total length of eight miles! A guided tour of those eight miles would surely be interesting, but -- alas -- this busy place doesn't offer tours. Easy to figure out why. We were grateful for the tower, allowing us to see a tiny portion of the yard.
