Does anybody have the location of any railroad tunnels (abandon or active) in the anthracite region?

I am somewhat suspect of this list. I don't recall the Laurel Line having a tunnel in Yatesville.

Were there any tunnels in Yatesville? I can't think of any. The WB&E stayed prettuy high through there, and the D&H/CNJ followed a creek.

There are a lot of errors on that page. I corrected the info on the DL&Ws Nicholson and Factoryville tunnels not too long ago, those are the only ones I knew enough about that I found anything wrong with. If you see anything that needs fixing just click "edit" at the top right of the page.
