Tunnels

A railmotor disappears into Tunnel 1 at Belmore Place. 

A second tunnel was excavated during 1869 at the other end of Belmore Place, but was found to be geologically unstable and demolished prior to opening of the Zig Zag.  The demolition entered history as the first use of an electric detonation fuse in Australia - amazing new technology in the 1860's!
