DHogan Hello from El Paso. Do you have information on the western water stops? My father (a 30-year T&P brakeman) told me they would stop eastbound out of EP at Fabens then Small for water but I don't remember others. Small is between McNary and Sierra Blanca. No sign of the old water facilites remain. Keep up the good work on this forum!
