ALASKA HOME TUNNEL
VALDEZ, ALASKA -USA
Location: About 8 miles north of Valdez
Description:
  • RAILROAD TUNNEL
Comments/Directions:
Though not significant in it size, it is the only remnant of a railroad that never was. Planned and begun in 1908, the Alaska Home Railroad was to reach copper mines in McCarthy. A battle ensued between this line and a Railroad from Cordova that resulted in the death of an Alaska Home employee. The backers of the line pulled out financing and the line was never built. This is all that remains.
