Water for Steam Engines

From: "Carol Beitz"

How did the early American railroad companies supply water for steam engines?

Schenectady CP Locomotive 1061


We recently found a photograph of a Baldwin [sic] CP locomotive 1061 in files at Golden Spike National Historic Site. It also has several crew members in front of it. While looking up information about this particular locomotive, I came across another photo that you have on your website. Because of this, I thought I would contact you to see what kind of information you have regarding the 1061 locomotive. Could you provide me with any information? When it was produced? Used? Any significance? Etc...
