This tunnel was hand-cut starting in 1905 and the site of a railroad company shootout in 1906 as explained in The Iron Trail by Russ Beach.
The Valdez Railroad Tunnel was hand-cut starting in 1905. Nine companies were battling to take advantage of the short route from the coast to copper country. Progress on the tunnel was interrupted and after a gun battle, construction halted and the tunnel was never finished. You can read about the tunnel and these events in Rex Beach’s novel, The Iron Trail. (Matterport)
