Just add sound

I would love to hear this loco roaring out of the tunnel!

Still Ticking

This photo shows the original tunnel, carved out in 1854 and still in operation. In 1905, a second tunnel was opened south of this one, but it was damaged during a 1955 hurricane and abandoned for train use. Modern views show it being slowly taken over by nature and the elements.

Close the windows!

It's going to be really smoky with that low roof. Looks like they put a concrete (reinforced?) slab into the rock, too.
