EBT 15 at Coles
Title:  EBT 15 at Coles
Description:  15 passes the station and water tank at an area known as Coles. On the real EBT this area is high up n Sidling Hill on a curve known as Mule Shoe. The station is long gone, but the tank still stands. The track is still there although it is barely visible now. It is in the middle of "no where" with no town around, and yet it is one of the most beautiful spots on the railroad.
