Taylor has it right. I thought I might even stump him for a little bit. Here are a few more photos from the same site. The concrete dam is some distance up the creek bottom from the water tank and was the water source. The piece of rusted screen is near the dam and was probably used to filter the water flowing down a small wood stave pipe to the water tank. All that is left of the wood pipe is the wire that wrapped around it. Perhaps the wood line was consumed by a wild land fire in decades past. McCoy siding is down grade below the water tank and was frequently used as a meeting point for trains. There is evidence of a siding at the water tank, but it does not show up on any ROW maps I have seen, so was perhaps abandoned in favor of a longer siding early on in the life of the railroad. In the first photo in this set you can just see a glimpse of my green pick up through the pine tree. The day we took these photos, a very quick moving thunder storm came up unexpectedly with lighting strikes hitting around us on the higher ridges. We sprinted back to the truck just in time to avoid an accompanying cloud burst.
