Fields to Frazier

Tunnel number 15, located just west of the west switch at Fields, is the shortest tunnel on "The Hill" at 150 feet in length. The rock outcropping to the right of the tunnel provides an excellent view of the middle level of the loop. Directly below, the tracks pass through tunnel 19, and tunnel 18 can be seen to the west.
