Just a quick look at the Easten End of Box Tunnel and the rail entrance to spring quarry. The entrance was used by Ammo Trains during WW2 and was a possible entry point to Burlington if evacuation was by train.

I was a little short of time on this visit but beyond the initial area there is a 1/2 mile long dual railway platform which can be accessed with the right "maps" ;) .
