2022 Convention

Cheyenne, Wyoming
May 11-14

Featuring Both Historical and Model Railroading Programs!

The UPHS 2022 Convention will be held in Cheyenne, Wyoming May 11-14, 2022. Registration will be $195 until April 1, 2022 and after that, late registration will be $215. The registration form will be inserted in the Fall 2021 Streamliner mailing.

This year’s convention will incorporate both historical programs along with model railroading. The convention is being held in conjunction with the Cheyenne Rail Heritage Days, the Sherman Hill Train Show, the Cheyenne Depot events. There is ample parking at the Model train show at the Laramie County Fair Exhibition Hall at Archer, and there will also be a shuttle bus from the hotel to the show. Weather permitting we will also have some vintage equipment on display outside the hotel. A CA Caboose will be on display outside and some live steam models on display in the lobby.

The location will be the Red Lion Hotel, 204 West Fox Farm Road. Their phone number is 307-638-4466. The room rate currently is $109 per night. When you reserve your room tell them you are with the UPHS convention to receive our convention rate.

To find the hotel it is just south of I-80 Exit 362, Central Avenue. The next stoplight to the south is Fox Farm Road. Turn west and it is about a half block on the right. The Red Lion has a shuttle and Cheyenne has taxi service available to take you to and from the hotel if needed. Also there are rent-a-car dealers in Cheyenne.

The Agenda for the convention starts on Wednesday noon to 5pm when the registration tables open. There will be a social gathering that evening. On Thursday from 8am until 9pm., and on Friday from 9am until 9pm will have clinics and programs. On Thursday there will be Cheyenne trolley tours of historic downtown (limited space) for the women from 9am to 5pm. We thought this would give the wives and other guests an opportunity to enjoy something other than the regular scheduled programs. Saturday will be the train show and other events around town culminating with a Hospitality Hour and banquet at the hotel.

Register before April 1st for a $20 discount!
