DL&W - Oswego Tunnel
Posted May 25, 2022, by Anon (hotlinejack80 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I've actuly snuck in there one time before they really bolted it shut, the beginning of the tunnel looked it was being used as a storage area for water equipment like boeis and such, I also recall it being very flooded to the point where you could only walk on the tracks, there was also some scraped equipment laying around further down the tunnel.
