This started out as a documentation of the 54 tunnels on the Clinchfield Railroad between Elkhorn City KY and Marion NC. Later on, as my Tunnel Diaries navigator and Lord of the Topos, Lee Stone, found other tunnels and interesting places to visit, the blog expanded. As of October, 2013, we’ve pretty much run out of tunnels within reasonable driving range, so I’m including features like the dated concrete road overpasses the railroad constructed and anything else more or less related to the railroad industry in this area. I’ve also been updating the black-and-white pictures with color versions. These pictures are my own and should you wish to use them for your own purposes, please obtain my permission. Thank you.
