  • I love the old Big Boy. As a small boy, I would climb on it before the fence was put around it. It is impressive in size and majesty.  more »
  • Since the engines at the Depot Museum were closed, this is the only one you can actually see. This one is beautiful.  more »
  • They say only 8 of 25 Big Boys built are still around. Heck, I saw 27 on this trip alone and I wasn’t even looking for them. I have one in my backyard. Not in my area backyard, my actual backyard. I stole it, borrowed it, Engine #4999. Logistics were a little tricky, but I was determined to make it work. Don’t tell Union Pacific, cause I’m not giving it back. Neat train display in a mediocre park. My display is better. 🚂🚂🚂🚂
  • Very cool to be able to see one of the eight remaining largest steam engines ever built. It is stored in a beautiful a park in Cheyenne. There's not much you can do other than look at the fenced in train and read about the Big Boy on a board, but still definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.
