The Fairview Bridge and Cartwright Tunnel is located in Sundheim Park off of Highway 200, about 4 miles east of Fairview, North Dakota.
Check out this video for a full walk through the tunnel, but if you get the chance you should definitely experience it for yourself and see just how cool it is! As far as defunct railroad tunnels go, this one is definitely the most awesome, and there is no other railroad tunnel in general – in use or not – in North Dakota to experience.
