Wednesday in Wyoming - June 27, 2018

While the capitol is the largest construction project in Cheyenne, it's not the only one. The famous Big Boy 4004 steam engine, which was retired from service sixty years ago and is currently located in Holliday Park, is also undergoing restoration.

Unlike the capitol project, which requires multiple years of effort, this restoration will be completed later this summer.

Here's some more information about the Big Boy as well as a close-up view of the shrouding.

And, if you wondered what it looks like without all that plastic around it, here's the answer.
Cheyenne owes its existence to the railroad, so it's no surprise that the city treasures its historic trains and wants to preserve them for future generations.
