Finished up in 1916, this is Caney Fork tunnel, right at McClure VA,  in Dickenson County.  It’s 412′ long, with a curve. Coordinates are 37.102793, -82.377871.  Clean little tunnel..some exterior erosion, though.  Figures, after nearly 100 years.

    I went to see the santa train there when I was 5 or 6 years old and many years afterward.

      It must have been a thrill to see it come rolling through!
