This tunnel's official name is the Welling Tunnel, built in 1852 and improved over the years of active service on the B&O.

I discovered this tunnel thanks to Google Maps. I do not know the local name for the tunnel. I just named this entry after a local landmark. If someone knows the original name, or the name used by locals, then please correct it.
