    It's been done before on here, but I checked it out today and thought I would throw up some pictures.
    Really a great and simple explore. Fantastic rock work inside.

    Part of the Macmine Junction to New Ross rail line, construction started in 1885 and it officially opened in 1887. Line was abandoned and the last train passed through in 1995. Since then any track has been removed.

    Littered with graffiti and beer cans at the entrance but its generally untouched near the centre of the tunnel. Hard to spot as its within a forest.

    1. Bridge across the river barrow.

    2. of all the bridges ive explored this one seemed to be in the poorest condition.

    3. No flooring left across the centre span. This span pivots/swings and you can see some of the cog wheels left if you were brave enough to climb out to the middle.

    4. The tunnel is hidden within this forest. You can see where the track used to be.

    5. South entrance by the bridge. Easiest to access from here.

    Alls I have is a fenix fenix ld20, which does a fantastic job tbh. Better than my first attempts at taking photos in a tunnel (see my first report on here).
    According to the other explore of this tunnel reported on here, its about 700m. Seemed a bit longer than that however.
