One of the largest steam locomotives ever built started a month long trip today from Cheyenne, Wyoming.  Stops include Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and then back to Cheyenne.  A trip to California is planned for October.

The schedule is on the website -- click on STEAM and the next page has a link to the schedule.

UPDATE - July 10th -- Due to flooding in Nebraska, the loco is being held in North Platte until further notice.
