Still searching for a definitive answer. I have been as close as possible
(without trespassing)
to both the east and west portals. Obviously, the west portals and bridges
were constructed at different times. The main re-enters WV within a few feet
of # 1 tee box on the golf course, but the tracks do not cut across the
course itself.

The track which loops "outside" the oxbow in the river feeds from the
westbound track past the golf course; continues past Lobata etc., and ends less
than one mile from the tunnel portals. Could not see anything in 2005 to show
that this may have been the original main.
But the tunnels may be nearly 100 years old by this time. Still searching -
