Stopped here on our way to Railfest 2012 in North Platte, Nebraska. The depot museum had a lot of information and artifacts to show off. We really enjoyed seeing these. On the second floor, though, they have acquired a large model railroad and are putting it together. Not all is in working order yet, but what is working is great! It is an amazing layout. The museum adjoins the railroad station, which is in very good condition. There is also a small shop, with very friendly ladies running the place. If we are back in this area, we will be sure to stop by again and see if the railroad model is finished.

This is a small museum but worth stopping if you are in the area with an extra hour. It shows the history of the railroad yard in Cheyenne as well as general steam engine information.

Cost was $6 per adult (don't know about kids) but I don't mind supporting a small museum. It was worth the stop.

The Cheyenne Depot Museum is a very nice place. It is a pretty small museum, but it is nice. It is nicely restored, and it looks great. I enjoyed the overlook of the UP mainline and yard, as well as the gift shop.

We had a couple of hours to kill on our way from Buffalo, WY to the Denver airport and decided to take a spin around Cheyenne. We had spent the night in Cheyenne the week before on our way north, and found the town quite endearing.

We were thrilled to see that this was open so we make a quick trip through the museum and enjoyed every single minute. Of course, if the 10 year old granddaughters hadn't been with us and we didn't have a plane to catch, my husband would have spent hours.

This is a must-see for all train addicts.
