I think this is the 1517 foot long Lough Tunnel on the Elk Creek Spur. Here's an old railway age article on its construction and opening.

I will have to play Sergeant Schultz with this one as "I know nothing" about it. I found it thanks to Google Maps.

I assigned it the name "Cherry Hill Tunnel" based on a local place name.

Okay, Railfans, your turn! Have fun with this one!
