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.
