That's the engine dive, runs right under Redfern Station through to South Eveleigh. Not used as much these days, but saw a lot of action in the days of steam. Have read stories of loco crew being a little worse for wear after a bad run through the dive bringing down loads of soot into their engine
Thanks for the information, it is a tunnel not a cut and cover? Idea being it could be used to by pass Redfern Station or run around trains?

Definitely a tunnel. Single track, just under 300 metres long. Mainly used as one of the many ways that a train can proceed from Eveleigh to Central. Never been through the dive, but I understand that it is not the easiest of gradients out there, especially for a steamer running tender first coming out of Eveleigh
Thank you for the information. Confusedmiley
