Cheyenne has a lot of neat train "stuff", including a beautifully restored train depot with a museum. It is a cute, walkable downtown area with lots of antique shops. The best find of the day was a small train yard that has a little track with a rebuilt steam engine, called Cheyenne Steamers. I had stumbled upon it when I was searching for things to do in Cheyenne. When we got in the late afternoon, no one else was there, so Owen got to ride and ride to his heart's content. The train is maintained by a small group of train enthusiasts who like to raise money to restore old train cars. One of the gentleman gave me a tour of a train car from the late 1880s that they are currently working on. It was so cool to be inside and see how they are working to save the car from complete ruin.

|Owen loved watching the coal being shoveled into the boiler|
|Someone was very happy on that train!|
