So how does one become a Steam Club member?  Just curious.  It's my understanding one has to be a member to ride this train.

The Steam Crew will be performing a break-in run with Big Boy No. 4014 down to Denver on July 8, returning back to Cheyenne on July 9.  No schedule or location information will be available on this break-in run, but if you happen to be out in the area, be sure to wave from a safe distance if you happen to see No. 4014 out and about!

2021 Tour Photo Contest

We LOVE seeing your photos of our steam locomotives, and during the 2021 tour, we're going to be giving away Big Boy T-shirts to people who post the best photos during the tour to their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds using the #BigBoy2021 hashtag!  Make sure the permissions on your posts are public so we can see them, and watch your DMs on each platform to see if your photo has been selected as a winner!

That's all for now. Be safe, and we'll see you trackside (at least 25 feet away) starting in August!
