Below is the northern entrance just outside the
station at Queensbury.

of the northern entrance to Queensbury tunnel

 
Here the southern entrance showing the depth of
Strines cutting.

 
The tunnel was nearly two miles long and cost the
lives of two men during its construction.
 
My thanks to the Casserly and Alsop collections for
their views of this magnificent piece of civil engineering
