Depot Days

As luck would have it, our time in Cheyenne coincided with the city's Depot Days, so we spent the day amongst a myriad of trains, big and small. We got to visit the museum and learn all about the building of railways by hand and the necessity to build to a rythm to keep things moving efficiently. We also got to tour the steam shop, where they work on the locomotives, and the round house, where we saw some massive engines. Additionally, we saw a ton of model trains and got to chat with train enthusiasts from all over. We had lunch at a fun little train-themed diner, and then before leaving the downtown area, we popped into a local brewery for some refreshments. When we got back to our campground in the late afternoon, the boys took to the onsite miniature golf course and played until after dark, while the rest of us read in the warmth of the RV. It was a lovely day, and we were glad we got to be a part of the Cheyenne Depot Days.
