Remarks: The Spartanburg yard crew was working with two GE U18B units this day. The crew has finished their work for the day, and are taking the baby U-Boats back to the yard office. The tunnel they are entering was built in 1963 under Southern Railway's track, it allowed the CSX predecessors (P&N, ACL & CRR) to bypass the Southern when interchanging traffic.
My father was the first enigneer to pass through the tunnel with a freight train after it was completed. The reason for the tunnel was built was that the Southern charged the ACL for every car that had to pass through their yard at the time. Thanks for sharing the video!!
