Mike Pannell of Wasatch Railroad Contractors was kind enough to come to the KGAB studios and talk about the completed renovation of Cheyenne's Big Boy steam engine.

Wasatch Railroad Contractors (WRC) took on the project.

Not only does the old girl look better, but there are a few extra treats. When someone walks in front of the train at night all of its light will come on, including the ones inside the cab.

In the future, they hope to replace the chain link fence with a much more attractive iron one.

The story of the restoration and the history of this engine are in this video.

The old train engine sits on display in Holiday Park, Cheyenne Wyoming.
