Okay, when I clicked open in new tab on my mobile device the photo still opened. The other photos we're blank just like the one that you posted.
It appears in thumbnail view, but when you click on it, this appears:
Photo number 6 is still appearing on Pinsdaddy. I know this is still a work-in-progress, but I wanted to let you know so that you could troubleshoot.
I did report them to the site that I believe is hosting but the host emailed me back and said they couldn't do anything because they're just a host or some bologna like that. Essentially they are ignoring all dmca takedown requests.
There are a few blogs on the internet where people are discussing this new Pinsdaddy website and any possible sites that might be hosting it. A few people are kicking around the idea of a class action lawsuit. I don't know if I don't get that far but we shall see.
But for now they are still able to use Photo number 6 from this page.
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.
