Luke - I can't find an e-mail address for Sherman Cahal in the Contributors list. If you have one for him, can you send it to me?
Okay, that makes sense. I think there might be a couple of tunnels in Wheeling that have interstate highway type bridges over them.
Sherman Cahal is a contributor, so maybe it would be prudent to email him and have him upload his own work.
And the given photo is of the Northern portal https://outgress.com/portals/chapline-hill-tunnel-north.1020...
A couple of thoughts:
1. I think that this photograph depicts the wrong tunnel.
2. The photograph is watermarked with a copyright symbol. Should we be using it on here?
Yes, if the folks in Wheeling can accomplish that project, they will have one of the most interesting rail-trails nationwide. The southern Mt. Wood tunnel has collapsed in the middle. That is probably the biggest obstacle for the project.
Hopefully Mt. Wood (S) and the adjacent deck truss are also converted whenever you are in the area.
Thanks Luke. I have not visited this tunnel yet. I hope to walk through it someday.
Your location is correct.
Location and length are approximate. See link for more information.
