Description 

This 462-foot tunnel was built in 1916, and is also known as Tunnel #13.2. Originally the railroad crossed Bridge #398 here. On January 22, 1916, the same slide that destroyed the original Bridge #402 on the lower part of the line also destroyed the snowshed here, and the decision was made to relocate the railroad into a tunnel.
