Description:
In the decline of the railroad industry, many railpaths have been dismantled, often leaving tunnels through hillsides abandoned. Some have been nearly forgotten, others have been reborn for new uses such as a rails to trails pathway. Whatever the condition, as long as the tunnel is no longer active, it can be listed here.
