CL&N Tunnel North Portal

If you’ve been following along for any length of time, you’ve probably seen my interest in local historical sites of all types, including those related to local railroads.  One of the many places on my list to visit is a remaining tunnel on the CL&N line which used to run from Cincinnati to Dayton through Lebanon.  Much of the track is gone, but there are a number of features remaining from the line.  I actually visited several on the day I visited the tunnel, but I’ll save those for other posts.

I didn’t get to do as much photography and scouting as I would have liked, because this was an impromptu visit, more for scouting than anything else.  I will be back though, with better camera equipment, lights, and suitable attire for sloshing through the standing water in a 100+ year old tunnel!   Here’s the images I captured this time around.
