Scratch33,

No idea if this has anything to do with your picture, but if you follow this link:

http://books.google.com/books?id=zvV...nel%22&f=falsej

Search for "Sand Run Tunnel" and it brings up a picture (Plate XXIII I believe) ... looks kind of like yours, possibly on the other end?

I'm from WV originally, so I had some interest in your pic. Thanks for sharing.

I think you nailed it - part of the old Coal & Coke Railway. The other end of the tunnel should be a quarry.

I see it's also listed as a Geocache site. Would be interesting getting to it - the hillsides are extremely steep & gnarly.

Thanks!

Old Train Tunnel, Hamakua Coast

The county crews have been doing a major cleanup and brush clearing of the highway on the Hamakua coastline. This is the remains of a train tunnel near Laupahoehoe Gulch, usually barely visible behind all the brush:
