Water Tank at Dalies, NM

The tank at Dalies, NM was long a silent sentinel watching over the junction where the original main line from Albuquerque meets the newer line coming up from Belen. It was once part of a complex of railroad buidings that included an interlocking tower, bunkhouse, section house, another tank, and a pumphouse. One by one, the other facilities disappeared, with the tank finally standing all alone by the late 1990's. It was removed some time before 2004.

The conical roof on this tank, by the way, was a post-steam-era addition.
