What Bob Kise said - "ditto"! I'm guessing that tunnel on the right is from the original railroad right-of-way alignment? If so, no wonder the line was realigned...that AC4400 would DEFINATELY not fit through that bore! :-) Needless to say, neither would the whole train with rolling stock growing in size over the centuries as well! I like this one Matt, you caught a good one here!
