Upper Animas Camps with Train Access?

I am planning on an trip down the Upper Animas next summer, where some peeps will take the train and meet me at a camp. What is the best camp to meet people coming in by train? Seems like Needleton may be the best, possibly only option. Does the train stop at Needleton? Is there a functional bridge at Needleton? Any other camps worth hitting that have access to good hiking?

Can you drink water out of the Upper Animas, or is it too manky from upstream mines?

Needleton is the train stop for people, gear etc. Plenty of camping right there to choose from. Yes there is a bridge right there to access chicago basin and other misc. During runoff you could feel safe drinking the water with a good filter, but I'd carry mine.
