I realise this has already been done on here, but we went through a couple of months ago, so just thought I'd share a few pics.
.. and as Trankmast has stated elsewhere, it's a great place to hone your light-painting skills! Been through twice recently & will defo be doing again at some point.

The Tunnel was completed in 1850 by the OWWR (Oxford-Worcester-Wolverhampton Railway)
It opened out right into Dudley Train Station back then, but the station closed in 1964 following the infamous Beeching Axe.
A Freightliner terminal opened up in the late 60's and closed around 1989. Freight trains continued to use the tunnel until 1993.

Here's one from back in the day, when we used to hang 'round in the tunnel, waiting for trains to come through.
