The Sherman Hill Model Railroad Group announced today that they are canceling the Sherman Hill Train Show scheduled for May 17th & 18th at the Cheyenne Frontier Days grounds in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  Sherman Hill Train Show will not be rescheduled this year and will be back in May 2021.

This follows the annoucement that the Union Pacific Historical Society announced mid-week that its convention in Cheyenne (13th-16th) has been canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. The UPHS will try to run a replacement convention in Cheyenne in 2022.  If you registered for the UPHS convention watch for a refund check or a refund credit on your card in the next 10 days. 

This is the latest cancellation of the events planned for the Cheyenne Railroad Heritage Days the week of  May 13th-18th which included the Sherman Hill train show, UPHS convention and Cheyenne Depot Days celebration.

We certainly are living in unique times! The stay-at-home requirements dictated by the COVID-19 virus have required all of us to manage our lives differently.  Recognizing that the age of many of our members fall squarely into the high-risk exposure group according to the CDC. In accordance with the Governor of Colorado's key message continues to be stay at home to the greatest extent possible, we are until further notice suspending any in-person club activities to do our part for others and minimize the spread of disease.

We are all eager for life to get “back to normal” – the more diligent we are about utilizing these precautionary measures when we are in the public, the sooner that will happen.
