Up in the Attic in Cheyenne
Author: bakersfielddave

Whilst visiting the Cheyenne Depot museum last year    a detailed DRGW  steam Narrow Gauge era  model railroad  is housed up in the top floor , worth a visit if in Cheyenne 

there wasnt much happening a very quiet day here  due to being snowed in, but the scenery was very good and the few trains running were also worth the visit

I have heard about , never been up there, thanks  for showing us!The relocation and rebuilding of one of the world’s most popular and loved narrow gauge model railroads, the Union Central and Northern is occurring in the 2nd floor baggage room at the historic Cheyenne Depot Museum. The Union Central and Northern (UC&N) Model Railroad layout created by Harry S. Brunk of Clarkson, NE officially opened during the 2012 Depot Days. Mr. Brunk spent over 30 years handcrafting everything from the scenery to the rolling stock for this HO scale of the narrow gauge Clear Creek (Colorado) Lines of the Colorado and Southern Railway. The UC&N's development has been chronicled in over 100 magazine articles over the years in Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette and the Model Railroader. While the layout is very well known it has never left Mr. Brunk's residence or been on public display until now.Through the generosity of Mr. Brunk and thoughtfulness of Mr. Rick Steele, owner of LaBelle Woodworking the UC&N has been donated to the Cheyenne Depot Museum for permanent public display.  from their websitemeanwhile in Boulder this guy is downsizing,the house is going, and his pike is for sale, not sure of the status, perhaps check it out,  skip went over and filmed it

I visited a couple years ago, nothing running and in fact I was the only one up there, but my goodness,
what a sweet  narrow gauge model railroad!

When I looked at the first few views of the "pit crew," I thought that it was a prison gang "Breakin' rocks in the hot sun." But later views showed it to be a baseball game.
