I was searching for insulators on the old west shore RR and found a hidden tunnel. Doubt I would have found it if I wasent off trail looking for insulators. This thing is invisible from the trail.

Tunnel is so the trail doesn't wash away. Must get large volumes of water at certain times of the year. Looks lik it is from the Great depresion era. They did lots of work like this. I have found plenty like it on the hudson all done in the 30s. When i get down there again i will post a couple. Love the arched stone. Very gothic.

I assume it was from the depression. Probably a CCC project although I cant find any markings from who built it. I did find a overpass farther down that had 1910 on the concrete, that was it

Thats nice. Lots of stone stairs, roads That zig-zag from the top of the cliffs 100+ feet down to the river. Huge stone retaing walls that are engineering marvels considering were and when they were constructed.
