The Other Hawleyville Tunnel

After a little research on this one, the only thing I can come up with is this tunnel is part of the Shepaug Valley Railroad and was built around 1871. One can assume its age based off the rudimentary construction: blast it, dig it out, lay tracks. This tunnel runs parallel to the Housatonic, while the other tunnel goes UNDER it.
