CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne’s other Big Boy is accepting visitors for a brief time Saturday. 

For those who planned to watch Union Pacific 4-8-4 No. 844 go west Saturday to Ogden, Utah, a trip that has been cancelled and the Northern added to No. 4014’s inaugural run on May 4, you can still visit a Big Boy locomotive tomorrow: No. 4004 in Cheyenne’s Holliday Park. The engine will be available for public tours from 10 a.m. to noon.

Wasatch Railroad Contractors completed a cosmetic restoration on the locomotive in 2018. It rests not far from the steam shop, where UP’s steam crew is finishing work on No. 4014.

Representatives of the contractor will be on site to talk about the project and answer questions. The fenced enclosure that protects the engine will be open.
