Water at Smith's Creek. About every 4 trips around the Greenfield Village, the Weiser Railroad's locomotives will need water. Here we see Locomotive #1 "Edison" pausing with her train at the water tank, just a hundred yards or so beyond the Smith's Creek Depot. Like just about everything else in Greenfield Village, the water tank is indeed real and functional. Just behind the tank and barely visible above the top of the tank is the railroad's coaling tower, which is also fully functional. Once a day, typically about 2PM, the trains will also stop and top off their tenders with coal. About the only thing on this railroad that is not terribly authentic are the passenger cars, but I'm sure most village patrons would rather ride in open cars such as these, because they afford a better view of the park, and because they are far cooler than regular coaches on hot summer days. The railroad has about 6 of these cars. Three were custom-built by Crown Metals and three were fabricated on site from freight car and caboose chassis.
