There's a picture of the 231 in Staufer, Shuster and Huddleston's
book, C&O Power p. 210. There appears to be an error in the caption-
"Classed A-5, it was scrapped in 1925". The data I read about the
collapse was from an article in the RL&HS Bulletin. Seems 10 or
so employees were also killed. Does anyone recall if they're still in the
tunnel ? On Church Hill, you can see craters created when the blue
marl failed to support the bore.
