There are two remnants of the railroad on the walking tour and a few more on the private property that contains the mine. Here you can see the water tower for the steam engines pulling the trains and the coal sorter for supplying the fuel. The train was the only way to to get the ore from Lake Valley to get processed.

Directions: Lake Valley is located on New Mexico Highway 27 about 12 miles North of Nutt.
