Remarks & Notes 
Eastbound at Tank Creek After taking on water, the mixed train heads East for a series of runbys. The original wooden water tank was removed from this location in 1966 and replaced with the body of a railroad tank car seen in the distance. To ensure a reliable water source the D&SNG's MOW crew has constructed a concrete dam in the creek above the tank.
