As a youngster I walked along these tracks and sometimes
would sneak into that dark tunnel.
Of course I would make sure there were no trains coming.
Looking back on that, it was probably a very stupid thing to do!
This is the tunnel in Talcott West Virginia, near where I grew up.
It is the sister to the tunnel (which is beside this one)
that John Henry worked on. Do you know the legend of John Henry?
He really isn't a legend where I grew up...we think he was real and that
he really DID beat that steam drill.
