General information for future tours:

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to tour the Union Pacific Steam Shop! There were just twenty-five of the massive Big Boy steam engines ever built, and only 8 remain today. Now’s your chance to visit the Steam Shop where Big Boy # 4014 is housed. Public access to the Steam Shop is only offered a few times per year. These tours include admission to the Cheyenne Depot Museum and transport to the Steam Shop on the Cheyenne Street Railway trolleys. All this for just $20 per person. Tickets may be purchased at the Depot Visitor Center or by calling 307-778-3133.

 

Tour begins at the Cheyenne Depot Museum (121 W. 15th St) at 12:30 P.M.

  • *Tickets should be purchased in advance as they generally sell out.

  • *Tour passengers are required to wear closed-toe shoes. Wearing a jacket is recommended. Hardhats, safety glasses, and earplugs will be provided at the Steam Shop. Work may be happening while tours are in progress.

  • *We suggest bringing a water bottle.
