Nice pic.   "There's a prototype for everything."

My heart is warm with the friends I make, 

And better friends I'll not be knowing;

Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take,

No matter where it's going.

Really nice work here! I came to this thread pretty late, but enjoyed looking at the whole thing.

Here's my favorite portal on my Mont Juic on my layout. Mountain is just Alpine meadow waiting for me to figure out what tree coverage I want. Procrastination is a good thing sometimes. Portals are scratch-built Masonite, mountain is plastic soaked Bountie on woven cardboard strips. I took the first picture tonight with a hand-held long lens on the Canon EOS. Could be better focus.

This one was shot earlier before all the plaster was painted and the water effects weren't in place.

I don't think I posted on my collapsing tunnel.  Don't panic ......

I just wanted a micro with storage... and a pit mine, a lid that covered it; plus some quick change scenery for either country or industry. Laying it flat is a grassland lid, or flipped for a construction site "mud-lot"& connecting pavement. I don't really use the storage. No telling what I left in it   Cranes and industry have dominated this hand bent micro 0-20" since this time; hence the tunnel is collapsed now

Various tunnel scenes on the Free State Junction Railway.   The tunnel portal with the trolley car is made using real rocks.  The wooden tunnel portal is from Scenic Express.  IMG_9485IMG_9490IMG_9507IMG_9514IMG_9543IMG_3346IMG_8094IMG_8091IMG_3609

Greer Tunnel on what was the Montour railroad (walking South):

This is a bridge-tunnel-bridge situation. At the North end a bridge takes the grade above what is now the Pittsburgh&Central Ohio grade. That line also tunnels through the ridge and then crosses a bridge over Chartiers Creek.

Chartiers Creek bridge. 

Bridge at the other end of the Greer Tunnel. 

The Montour is a great rail-trail. National Tunnel is fun in the Summer because of the temperature difference.

For a couple years it was our exercise nearly daily. We lived a couple hundred yards from the Mine #4 T stop (Bethel Park) for 14yrs.

GEYSERGAZER, You could not pay nor force me to enter that tunnel.

Frank, the Big Savage Tunnel on the Great Allegheny Passage rail-trail (Western Maryland) is a lot longer at 3,294ft. It is also lit. That was a several $million project because they had to invent and deploy bullet-proof lights because the locals like to pot-shot stuff.

There are solid doors which are closed all Winter to prevent freeze damage to the lining and surface.
