Big Boy was one of 25 built in the 1940's, taken off steam in the 50's, great shame. 132 feet long with 16 big wheels and 12 small ones, it carried 28 tons of water and weighs 1.28 million pounds! What else can I say:...More

This train is an intersting part of railway history. Well worth a visit when in the Cheyenne area. It lives up to the name Big Boy!

They now have a working one at the depot for adventures on rails. If you have never seen one of these engines, you are midsing out. almost a city block long and two stories tall, these things are massive.

It's very interactive and something for everyone. It's a chance to learn about trains and get up close and personal. It's a place you should come it's educational and what's more Cheyenne than Trains?

If you are into trains this is a must. A huge engine one of 25 originally made, with only eight left in various museums around the US. Worth a visit.

Well preserved and maintained giant steam engine, one of the few remaining examples of this the largest steam engine ever built (nicknamed Big Boy) and operated anywhere in the world. This engine ran between Cheyenne and Ogden UT, over the famous Sherman Hill. Awesome.
