An east bound CSX autorack train emerges from the rarely photographed east portal of Harpers Ferry Tunnel on May 9, 2014. The head end of this train is in Maryland, the middle section is on the Potomac River bridge, and the rear portion is still in West Virginia. The small backhoe above the tunnel is being used in conjunction with the enlargement of this tunnel in conjunction with CSX's National Gateway project to increase overhead clearances to 21 feet above the tracks to allow passage of double stack trains which started in early May 2011.
