D&RG Chama yard looking east at the coaling trestle. There are piles of new ties stored west of the tracks. A couple of early locomotives are near the trestle and turntable.
D&RG Chama, NM Taken by Werner, Charles A. - ca. 1910
In book "Chama/Cumbres With a Little Chili (2nd ed.)" page 211
Dorman credits this to Rex Mollette, but it seems somewhat early for him.

And a similar,but different photo: [ngtrainpics.photoshelter.com]

I didn't realize that the present coaling tower wasn't built in the era of the original railroad construction through Chama.
