That's probably what the Q did James...|
There was a water tank at Minnekahta, they could have made sure they had enough water both times they were there. The pictures of the mixed trains in Hot Springs show a ten-wheeler pulling them. I wonder if that was the regular power for the High Line train, or if it just came out of Edgemont that way.
I know that when I hired out in '77, the High Line would cut off one motor and bring the Hot Springs cars over from Minnekahta. I saw them in Town a couple times, delivering coal to the VA, and oil to the bulk plant. I have a picture of Q switcher #9143, in Hot Springs in 1950. I wonder if that came off the High Line train...possibly on its' way to Deadwood as their switch engine.
