I've been thru that tunnel -----------what I remember so clearly about it is the electric train that ran on it.

See the wires for the train ????

I found that really interesting and wondered why it was electric powered.

I'm thinkin' it was in Northeast Utah---but have forgotten exactly where.

Missouri and Northern Arkansas RR Tunnel near Eureka Springs, Ar.



The next picture is not mine but shows the inside of the tunnel. There is a Geocache at the mouth of the Eureka Springs side of the tunnel.

My cousin, the Chicken, told me that every tunnel in the area framed Mt. Rushmore - would have missed this without his advice.

There's an electrified railroad line in Northwest Colorado/Eastern Utah that's not connected to the national rail system. It runs from a coal mine in Colorado to a power plant in Utah. I think the line is something about 30 miles long.

Couple of friends and I rode out to the old Wright's Station tunnel. This is in the Santa Cruz mountains between Los Gatos and Santa Cruz.

Real de Catorce, Mexico

Here is a shot looking in to the 2.3 kilometer long tunnel leading to Real de Catorce, Mexico. The tunnel is easy. Trying to navigate the insanely steep and narrow cobblestone streets in town is the fun part. I highly recommend a visit. Only $12 buck a night and the Real de Alamos hotel.
