Printer KY Tunnel

We’re on the Long Fork Subdivision of the old C&O that ran from Martin KY to Hi Hat.  This is the north portal of a tunnel, faced out and supported by wood, near Printer KY (named for a John Printer, in case you were wondering).

It’s 350′ long and in good shape.  Here’s what the inside looks like:

And here’s the south portal:

Again, I don’t know how old these wood supports and facings are. The line went in sometime in the late 1920s and was active up until the 1990s.
