This is the "Petticoat Junction" water tower as it was back in summer of 2006.
They placed a roof atop of it to keep the tree leaves from falling in the watertower and cloggling it up. They run a steam train engine there some times and you all know that a steam train needs alot of water. It is located in Jamestown, CA, at "Railtown, Columbia State Park". The Sierra Railroad owns and operates it and you can ride on the train for a short ride. You may take a look at my photo album of the area and trains...Titles...Oakdale Dinner Train 2007 & Columbia State Park. The diesel train engine was one of the ammunition trains from the Concord Naval Wepons Station Railroad. It must have hauled a lot of ammo & bombs that went to Vietnam.
