The Chama coal tower is an impressive structure that dominates the
engine facilities. Similar structures were found at Durango and Gunnison
but have long since disappeared. The sketch below illustrates the structure
as viewed from the northern side. Click on any of the blue text below to
view various photos that I have taken over the years.
This overall view of the structure shows the west and south sides.
Also shown is the tower on the sand house adjacent to the coal tower. Photo
