There's a picture in the back of Linwood Moody's "Maine Two Footers" of one of the shays with a four man crew.
I guess ties would be appropriate for a high desert line. Can't grow grass without rain!
I did note in the Wikipedia article that there was a tank car on their roster. So B&SR wasn't alone.

The tank car was for locomotive water as New Mexico is short on that commodity.
