Former Boston & Maine Railroad tunnel, built 1903 to re-route a line crossing the Wachusett Reservoir. There was formerly a high-level trestle across the Nashua River, west of the tunnel, just downstream from the dam. The east end of the tunnel includes a large rock cut and concrete arch bridge carrying Clamshell Road above. Passenger service ended in 1958. Track has been removed.
