Pica Water Stop

Cruising along the Aubrey Valley we come to one of the few sources of water along the line at Pica. The original name was Picacho and changed to Pica in 1907. We are back to right hand running after going under the eastbound main between Pineveta and Gleed. The first track to the right is the westbound siding and the second track is for filling tank cars with water. If you are wondering about all that smoke, the train is powered by steam not diesel on today's run.

Climbing Yampai Hill

Just west of Pica the line curves to the north and climbs the grade up to Yampai.
