Train buffs may want to mark their calendars for railroad-related events that are slated for Cheyenne in mid-May as part of Cheyenne Railroad Heritage Days.
The Sherman Hill Train Show, presented by the Sherman Hill Model Train Club, is coming to the Archer Complex on May 14-15. The hours on Saturday, May 14 will be 9-5, and it will run from 10-4 on May 15. Admission is $10 for adults, and kids under 12 get in free.

Meanwhile, the Union Pacific Historical Society is holding its convention at the Red Lion Hotel in Cheyenne from May 11-14. This will be the society's first in-person convention since 2019, with the 2020 and 2021 events having been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the society's website:
This year’s convention will incorporate both historical programs along with model railroading. The convention is being held in conjunction with the Cheyenne Rail Heritage Days, the Sherman Hill Train Show, the Cheyenne Depot events. There is ample parking at the Model train show at the Laramie County Fair Exhibition Hall at Archer, and there will also be a shuttle bus from the hotel to the show. Weather permitting we will also have some vintage equipment on display outside the hotel. A CA-1 Caboose will be on display outside and some live steam models on display in the lobby.
