Oakman tunnels #2

These are the trestles coming out of both Oakman tunnels at the northwestern portals.  On the left are the remnants of the original trestle over the Clinch River.  It was abandoned and later disassembled and hauled away by elves or something.  The sturdy bridge to the right, probably circa 1936 or so, carries the line from the newer tunnel.  We’ll hit Sycamore tunnel next, then the soggy Greer tunnel, near New Tazewell.
