Laramie Engine Terminal is an O-scale model railway layout depicting a part of the Union Pacific Engine Terminal at Laramie Wyoming as it was in the late 1950s.
In the hot summers of 1957 & 58, the Union Pacific’s Big Boys (amongst the largest steam locomotives ever built) were brought out of store for their final moment of glory pulling massive trains from the Californian fruit harvest east over Sherman Hill between Laramie and Cheyenne in Wyoming. This layout aims to capture what it was like fuelling, watering and turning these monster beasts for this 50 mile each way shuttle.
The layout is built by Peter Kirmond (with a little occasional help from friends) and is based in the United Kingdom.
Feel free to explore the rest of this website to give you a flavour of what the layout is like and when it can be seen at exhibitions.
