    Wanna know if you guys knew of any bits left of them around the area to go and take a look at.
    I feel like there might be a foundation or something by Valley Park, but haven't seen anything myself.

    Old depot photos show a water tower for sure at Stanton, Cuba and Rolla.

    There were two at Dixon - one for the high-sulfur-content water and the other for treated. Footings for the treated-water tank remained for years and are probably still there. I was sitting on one when taking this photo.

    I saw a photo of one at Valley Park just west of the depot.

    Ah, maybe this explains why there were two wooden tanks at Chaffee, plus the metal one on top of the bluff? Note the two wooden tanks to the right and just "below" the roundhouse in the aerial photo that Don Wirth posted:

    Twin Tanks.jpg Here is a poor scan of a poor newspaper photo of the Dixon tanks.
