Re: History and construction drawings for old elevated water storage tanks

Water tanks at Wasatch, Utah and Artesian Well, Rock Springs, Wyoming can be seen in two Silvis photographs.

A water train is shown in Hart Stereoview #315.

Elevated water tanks, and tanks on flat car at Winnemucca Depot (Nevada) are shown in Hart Stereoview #319.

The water tanks on the Central Pacific, as shown in the Winnemucca Depot view ... , were later enclosed. these are represented with a bit of detail on 1880s station plat maps for the Central Pacific across Nevada, now in the California State Railroad Museum collection. Contact the CSRM Library at
