Abandoned Railroad Overpass
Posted September 30, 2013, by Logan Carmichael (loganthedj [at] gmail [dot] com)

This should actually be listed in Marion County, TN...not Claiborne. This is in South Pittsburg, just off Hwy 72 near the "River Park" alongside the Tennessee River -- in the shadow of the Shelby Rhinehart Bridge. The tunnel formerly carried trackage for the Sequatchie Valley Railroad, which now follows a different route.
