  • Umm, its a steam engine.
  • 12-12-2021 🚂 You can find one of World's largest steam locomotives here in Cheyenne & this powerful coal-fired engine was designed to pull a 3600-ton train over steep grades between Cheyenne, WY, and Ogden, Utah. The 4004 is one of the eight remaining Big Boys throughout the country. These pictures start at the front and do a complete circle around the train. These workhorses are almost extinct.
