The shear size of this once powerful Steam Locomotive put in awe! Looking forward to seeing a Big Boy steaming again when Union Pacific completes the rebuild.

If you are in the area, this is worth the 15 minute stop. Walk around, read the signs, gawk in amazement on how big it is. Then go back to the car and look up a YouTube video of one of them in action.

The only downside is that it badly needs some restoration before it rusts out...the downsides to having it outside in brutal Wyoming winters sadly. Its free and definitely worth the stop if you love trains and are in the Cheyenne area.

Took a quick look at this marvel of the late 1800's early 1900's It's a real work considering when it was made and what inter city travel was like back in the day before cars and air travel

My husband loved this. He was quite fascinated. If this is your thing it is free to see and the park where it is was nice.
