Remarks & Notes 
Eastbound Silverton Mixed. A D&RGW K-28 leads a mixed freight along the icy Animas River, on the eastbound run from Silverton to Durango. This train has just taken water at a location known as "Tank Creek" Historically, a D&RGW wooden water tank occupied the site just about 150 yards behind this train. Although that tank was removed in 1966, it was replaced with a steel tank and this location continues to be a water stop for the tourist trains on today's Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
