CSX/C&O Great Bend Tunnel and John Henry

Satellite plus Paint
The Great Bend Tunnel was constructed by the C&O in 1870-72, and it was over a mile long. It made the reputation for John Henry as "the steel driving man" because he had a race with a steam-driven drill. [History of West Virginia Railroads, search for John Henry]
