There seems to be some interest in this type of material....so here are two tunnel photos from Natural Tunnel near Duffield, VA. To protect myself and the rest of my crew, I can't post the actual train we were on. Hope you all enjoy these.

Exiting Little Tunnel, crossing Stock Creek, and about to enter Natural Tunnel. For those of you who have never been here before, Natural Tunnel was formed by the flowing waters of Stock Creek. Very little 'man-made' drilling was needed to create a passage way for the railroad. Today, the Tunnel is a State Park and you can ride a chairlift right down to the tunnel. You can see the pedestrian crosswalk in this photo, just across the bridge.</center>

Thats all for now. If I get a daylight job this weekend, I will try to make some more.
