I seem to recall that the Chama, Durango, and Gunnison coaling towers were all built about at the same time and to similar (or same) plans. These were built as part of the upgrading of the narrow gauge in the mid-twenties.

In 2005 there was a thread about the Chama Coaling Tower that has some of this information.

Prior to the coaling towers the company used good old gravity to transfer the coal into the tenders. By the mid-twenties these locations had electric power available.
