Kentucky is a state with few 19th-century historic trusses remaining in its statewide bridge inventory. That’s why it was surprising to come across fairly rare trusses and a tunnel in Walbridge, Kentucky.
The former Norfolk & Western Railway Twelvepole Line features over 35 bridges and several notable tunnels – many since replaced.
The Lenox Railroad was a short logging and coal railroad that connected to the Morehead & North Fork Railroad at Redwine, Kentucky—which included a tunnel at Leisure.
Several weekends ago, I rediscovered the circa 1882 Tunnels No. 1 and No. 2 along the Toledo, Cincinnati & St. Louis Railroad in southern Ohio.
