Re: Train Watering Station
My guess it that it was used for filling tank cars with water. As has been noted, there is no oil on the ground or on the spouts. I recall reading about trains of tank cars bringing potable water to the Florida Keys, and maybe this was for some similar purpose in Louisiana.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I can’t believe this complex was intended for filling tenders. Perhaps this is a ‘filling station’ for tank cars carrying water.
Very interesting. Somebody understand how it worked? Al
