Railway tunnel, Castlerock
About ¼ mile after Castlerock station C7735 : Castlerock station, Northern Ireland Railways the railway enters Castlerock tunnel (668 yards). Beyond, after a short spell in the open, it enters the shorter Downhill tunnel (307 yards). The red and white chequered signs indicate restricted clearance (for railway employees). I’m told that there are recesses (once known as “manholes”) inside to allow permanent way staff to shelter in the event of being in the tunnel when a train is passing.
