Located in Holiday Park, this HUGE steam engine is in an area set aside for photos and walking around its perimeter. The size of that engine will amaze you.

"Big Boy" is a "huge" tourist attraction to many who visit Cheyenne. Located in a city park, it is free to view and there is plenty of information provided to learn more about this historic locomotive.

Large locomotives are few and far between, so to see one outside in a park is cool. It is fenced in however so you cannot climb inside. The park is scenic as well, and it is only about a mile from the Cheyenne Depot Museum, so an easy walk if the weather is agreeable.

We were mighty impressed by this massive steam engine. It seems out of place in such a small park but it's definitely worth a look if you're in the area.

The engine and tender is on a small piece of track adjacent to a park (with parking area) and has low fence around. As the world's biggest engine worth a visit for say max half and hour to walk around.
