Old Steam Locomotive Returns to Life for Cheyenne Frontier Days [VIDEO]
On July 12, the recently restored Steam Locomotive No. 844 hit the tracks again for the first time in three years. The steam locomotive was built in 1944 and was the last steam engine built by Union Pacific. To get ready for Cheyenne Frontier Days, the train was restored to its original glory. This was a test run from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Greeley, Colorado to break in the locomotive, and it passed all inspections with flying colors.
