Tunnel.

Western Atlantic Railroad Tunnel and Museum

It was built so fast [in less than two years]. And "The General" locomotive chase passed through it.

[Laydon, 09/17/2016]

Ride a tram through the 1,500-foot-long tunnel, which is narrow and not for the claustrophobic. It was abandoned in 1928, then restored and opened to the public in 2000. Also here: the grave of rebel General Hood's leg.
