Tideflats Water Plug

Taken in the mid 60's with my Kodak Brownie, here is the old Milwaukee Road water plug located in Tacoma's Tideflat's Yard.
I only got to poke around Tideflats yard a couple of times. There sure were some gems there. Too bad that it's only and empty field now.
In the 1950's CN had the similar kind of Water Tower at Grandview, MB.
where 5 frieght trains a day and 2 passengers took on water.
