Old Train Tunnels

Scott W took a couple of pics of the old train tunnels between Los Gatos and Santa Cruz. Passenger train travel between San Jose and Santa Cruz was a big deal back in the day, before the widening of SH-17. With more people driving instead of taking the train, the service died out. Now, there is no railroad at all between the two cities. But, there are remnants of the line, like these tunnels. The guy in the white t shirt is Bret M. He's the owner of the Vega. (here and here)
And the cannon.
