Double Spouts

The double-spouted water tower can pour thousands of gallons of water into locomotive tenders or tank cars on either side. Old-timey double-spouted water towers aren't exactly common, so it's a treat for railroad fans to see this one in action at the Chama railyard of the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic railroad. About a foot of snow blanketed the railyard for its winter sleep at the end of 2007, with light snow falling late in the afternoon of the next-to-last day of the year.
