BR&P had confirmed that it belongs to LV....
well, technically he didnt "confirm" it.
IIRC, yes that water tower was the LV's. Its distance from the roundhouse would indicate water was piped over to a standpipe rather than having the locos take water from it directly.
It could be a LV water tank! we dont know for sure yet..I was just saying that IMO, it seems unlikely, because they wouldnt pipe water underneath all those tracks.
1904 map shows activitiy down there:

The question is, what is that? Is it something operated by the railroad itself? if so, it might have needed its own water supply down there, in which case, it could be a LV water tank, but for water seperate from the engine terminal area.
Or..is it some facility/industry *not* operated by the railroad, but only served by the railroad?
We dont know yet..
