This tunnel used to be the shortest active train tunnel made by man through a moutain spur according to Guinness. Grew up comming here since the sixties to see my Granny Thomas and of course Uncle's, Aunt's, and cousins. I too think the tunnel is cool beans!
This Building was in the Guinness record book for having three floors that opened on ground level on same street. Appalachia also has the shortest train tunnel through a moutain.
