Along the line: a place

(Picture: #170) 5/2003. The Bartle tank is one of two complete water tanks left standing on the railroad. It remained serviceable into the early 1980’s, but then fell into disrepair. A group of volunteers restored the tank to operation in late 1993/early 1994 in preparation for the return of the #19 in April/May of 1994. The tank has since lapsed into disrepair again and will need a lot of work before it can hold water again. There has been some talk of putting a plastic or equivalent lining in it. The railroad now waters it’s steam locomotives from fire service tank cars or from tanker trucks.
