Very accurately depicted. I remember that the road to Durango from Albuquerque follows the old line for a while, and a few miles out of town it passes an abandoned water tower that looks exactly like that one.

This is actually the Needleton water tank on the D&S.

For me the composition is great and the execution is excellent.I can draw but I have never really thought to draw locomotives  before () (except from a model) and my landscape skills are not up to it, so feeling a bit inadequate  seeing this, but do keep them coming. Also is this your day job?

Thanks! It's not my primary job, I work mostly in the cultural history field.
