Remarks & Notes 
Tanking at Smith's Creek. About every 4th trip around the Greenfield Village, the park's shuttle train needs to stop for water. Just a couple of hundred feet west of the Smith's Creek Station, the railroad has built a large wooden water tank, and adjacent coal tipple, both of which are fully functional. In this image, Locomotive #1 "Edison" is seen pulling away from the water tank, after topping up the cistern in her tender. Although there are multiple water stops during a typical operating day, the locomotive generally only needs to take on coal once, which happens every afternoon at about 2:45 PM, or thereabouts.
