Tunnel vision

Today I began lining he tunnel, now known as ‘Overdale Tunnel’ (or ‘Tunnel No.2′on the ‘Dales Peak’ branchline).

Lining the tunnel
This is partly to create the visual impression of the tunnel walls continuing beyond where the eye can see, and also to provide a practical support to the landscape above the track.

The tunnel lining can be seen quite clearly.
Looking back along the line, from the ‘Dalesmouth’ viaduct, the tunnel lining can be seen quite clearly. One more piece of lining, and a coat of black paint, should complete the illusion.
