After the train is turned around on the "Y" junction, the tender is topped of with coal on Friday.  Although it is possible to make both trips this weekend on this load of coal, the tender will be reloaded upon its return Saturday night.  Between the two tenders, 45,000 gallons of water can be carried, but that is only enough for about 300 miles!!.
