Re: Train Watering Station

I thought that the stack was a flare that would take care of vapors off crude oil loads. The headers along the ground might be various petroleum products that might be loaded.

But a flare is not going to come out of a structure, but it could be a heating boiler stack. Keeping water from freezing before loaded into cars?

I can’t believe this complex was intended for filling tenders. Perhaps this is a ‘filling station’ for tank cars carrying water.

The title says the subject is a train watering station. Is this correct or did this item have some other use, such as wetting down loads in open top cars?
