The Tunnel Inn will close 12/31/2013.
A railroad related B&B, visitors to the Altoona Area will find the Inn extremely convenient to the Horseshoe Curve and the Railroaders Memorial Museum. The Inn is adjacent to the Norfolk Southern mainline, and is less than two miles from the Gallitzin exit of US 22, at 702 Jackson Street in Gallitzin. When standing on the bridge facing the tunnels, the Inn is on your right.
The Inn features five non-smoking, air-conditionaed rooms, each with a private bath, cable TV and refrigerator. Our covered deck provides our guests with a weather proof vantage point from which to watch the more than 60 trains a day that go past the Inn. Night time lighting allows for 24/7 train watching if you like. Our wireless network provides internet access, and our "chiminea" wood stove keep our guests warm, while watching the trains at night.
An added benefit is Phil Faudi, a railroad historian and tour guide, who continues to get rave reviews from our guests, who have taken his guided tours of the west slope and Altoona area. Phils' lifelong love of the PRR and knowledge of current railroad operations comes across in his half day or full day tours.
"When you stay at the Tunnel Inn, only the engineer is closer to the train."
