The top of the modern portal to Weehawken Tunnel
is prominent in this view. The rear of a train is barely
visible as it recedes into the darkness of the 4100 foot bore.
The original tunnel was built in the 1880s to serve a New York
Central predecessor and the New York, Ontario and Western Railroad. The coming of light rail required its
enlargement, and construction of the system's only underground
station, at Bergenline Ave.
