It is #TBT and for Throwback Thursday this week we have footage from Colorado Railroad Museum volunteer Michael McBride of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Train returning to Wyoming on July 21, 2013 In this footage Michael captured Union Pacific Steam Locomotive No. 844 at Buffalo Ranch along the Wyoming / Colorado border.
