Wyoming's Elvis

57-year-old freight train conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad Oscar Sosa has been performing his tribute to Elvis for nearly six years at various venues in Wyoming and surrounding states.

"Actually, it was a lifelong dream to do this," he said."It's something I wanted to try, but didn't think I'd get to do," Sosa said. "I'm not doing this to become famous... I'm actually doing it for the people of my generation and for the people that knew him, saw him, heard him and loved him."

"I know I'm not Elvis... The important thing is I'm just bringing back a memory for some people to enjoy," he said. "I'll continue to do this as long as my health stays good and I can get into my suit."
