Abandoned Illinois Central Tunnel-Belleville, Wisconsin.

It was 20 years ago that my brother and I explored the setting of the abandoned former Illinois Central tunnel at Belleville, Wisconsin.

I made this image on Fujichrome Provia100 using my Nikon F3T mounted on a Bogen 3021 tripod near the north portal. Outside it was a dull afternoon, which helped provide more even lighting inside the old bore.

One thought on “Abandoned Illinois Central Tunnel-Belleville, Wisconsin.”

  1. I believe it’s now part of the Badger Trail and you can legitimately walk or cycle through it. Apparently it is unlit, but at only just over 400- yards, you’re never without daylight in the distance, even with the curve. Much more interesting however in your picture.
