Weehawken Tunnel Portal

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.
