    Seriously though, one one side it's a fenced in parking lot with no exit and on the other side is the train tracks. So if you wanted to ride on the CSX tracks, or flatten a penny, this would be the place to do it.
    Or drink by the train tracks. Just sayin.

    Dunno if anybody else was curious or especially still cares, but I always wanted to see what's on the other side of this tunnel and finally did this weekend.

    It's a fenced in, locked, abandoned parking lot. It doesn't connect to anywhere. It'd be a cool place to build a skatepark or something useful to anybody.

    Arlington has a skate park. What we need is a pump track :-)

    I have seen cars parked in there during the week. Not many, but some. Perhaps overflow from the lot adjacent to the access road, but it does seem far to go.
