I do not have a steam era timetable to check. But looking at track diagrams for the branch, it would appear that being only 12.9 miles from Minnekahta, no tank was built at Hot Springs to accommodate what , operationally, might be considered a switching move on a long spur.  This is pure speculation on my part. Perhaps someone with ETTs to consult could give a more definitive reply.  Jim Sandrin

Hi Folks....
I'm doing a presentation for the local Historical Society on the railroads in Hot Springs.  I've got maps and photos, but I don't see any water tanks in town on either the Q or the North-Western.  Does anybody have a steam era Employee TT that shows water in town?  I know there was a tank at Minnekahta Jct. on the Q, and a tank at Elm Creek, about halfway between Buffalo Gap and Hot Springs on the C&N-W, but I don't see any in town.  Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Mike
