Interesting, from further reading it appears that all these locomotives worked on the western section of the BC C.P. Rw. west of Revelstoke but they may well have been on Cayden's route too.

Further reading in the albums as led to this

Regulation Station Building http://www.kag.bc.ca/exhibitions/allaboard/74924.html

Water Tank http://www.kag.bc.ca/exhibitions/allaboard/74918.html

The first says that Station buildings were built every 10 miles and the second says that water tanks were built at every station.

Specifically they refer to the section between Yale and Savona's but one can construe this to apply to the entire rail line. Note that Station and Section houses seem to be the same thing possibly.

This would seem, if true, to answer my question about the frequency of water and fuel stations.
