      All the pipe went to Farmington to the oil fields there.
      It came into Durango from Alimosa...did a complete reversal
      of the train. The reverse loop in Durango at that time was the
      exact opposite of what it is today. The trains reversed and then
      went out but took the Farmington line down the river instead of
      taking the line to the east up the hill towards Chama.
      So the pipe came in from the Chama hill, reversed and went out
      the farmington turn.
