Union Pacific Steam Shop Offers Rare Historic Tours
It seems to me there is more interest than access to the Union Pacific Steam Shop. In a town full of railroad lovers, the rare chance to see the inner workings of where the mighty machines that opened the west, and is the reason Cheyenne exists where it is, brings great interest.
Established in 1867 at the crossing of The Union Pacific Railway and Crow Creek, the railway opened the west and Cheyenne proved to be the lynchpin. Now you can see where these powerful and magnificent engines of progress are maintained. Now you can make your plans to see The Steam Shop with one of 15 tours.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity, available only in Cheyenne. Now is your chance to visit the Union Pacific Steam Shop where Big Boy #4014 is undergoing restoration to operating condition, with the goal of running the rails once again.
