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. Ticket prices are $40 per person with a $2.50 processing fee.
Tour begins at the Cheyenne Depot Museum - 121 W. 15th St.
*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.
