Brockville Field Engine HousePhil Jago writes, October 2020  In addition to the 20,000 octagonal water tank at William Street in Brockville, the map of CPR track at the Field siding/engine house in Brockville also indicated the presence of a 40,000 gallon tank.  I wonder if it was removed when the shop was demolished and then the 20,000 gallon one built as a replacement.
