Tanking in Silver Plume. Although the larger station facilities and passenger parking lots are at the bottom of the hill in Georgetown, all of the Georgetown Loop Railroad's support infrastructure and equipment are headquartered at the top in Silver Plume. The yard complex includes a two-stall engine house and shop, a museum building, a station/gift shop, as well as fuel and water tanks at the west end. Here, the former IRCA Consolidation #111 stops at the water tank during a brief break in between runs. The engine only needs to take water once on each evolution. With the run to Georgetown pretty much a 4.5 mile drift, the only significant water usage is on the climb back to Silver Plume. As can be seen from this view, the yard in Silver Plume is pretty narrow in spots, with customer parking literally an arm's length from the locomotive here at the tank.
