The Museum’s “No Agua” water tank has a capacity of about 10,000 gallons and is used to fill the operating steam locomotives. The name comes from a water stop on the D&RG’s Chili Line to Santa Fe, New Mexico, located near a settlement called No Agua. In appreciation of the local humor, the railroad decided to call the water stop No Agua.
