The Moffat Tunnel

Modern-Day Professional Photography of The Moffat Tunnel

“When the Moffat Tunnel opened in 1928, despite the known parsimonious typographical error on the portals of each side of the tunnel, the Rollins Pass rail line began to fall into disrepair. It did not take long for the Moffat Tunnel to prove its reliability and expediency; the interior was weather agnostic, and the journey took 12 minutes in darkness to travel under the Continental Divide.” (description of The Moffat Tunnel, Rollins Pass, page 83)

Moffat Tunnel Historian B. Travis Wright discusses how the tunnel is a cathedral to engineering and a realization of David Moffat’s dream—as well as a uniquely American achievement from nearly a century ago. The East Portal Company Town and Rollins Pass are also mentioned.
