Thanks Luke. After the CSX(T) wars from a couple years ago, I have been a bit hesitant to post any rail names - even if they are listed on another website.
As I mentioned in a previous comment, I am planning to return to West Virginia later this year for a visit. I will photograph as many of these tunnels as I can.
My next project is to located the 10 Lost Tunnels (other than the Old Eaton Tunnel), and add them to Bridgehunter.
Robert, right about the time you posted that comment, I was adding rail lines from info I found in the Wikipedia article about the trail.
As a final note, I will let the railfans list all of the railroad names that are applicable to the tunnels from the "Appalacian Subway" as Mark Twain called it.
Apparently, the title for the new streetview did not come through. The tunnel is located immediately behind the roadcut to the right. Absent of a photograph, this is the closest we can get right now.
The Brandy Gap Tunnel is the easternmost tunnel on the North Bend Rail Trail in West Virginia. There are currently 13 tunnels along this trail. The trail passes through 10 of them and beside 3 others. There used to be more tunnels along this route, but many of them probably got "daylighted" and converted into large cuts.
I am hoping to visit West Virginia sometime this year, and I will make a valiant attempt to photograph as many of these tunnels as possible.
