Two questions about Alpine Tunnel - First Question

November 18, 2019 12:25PM avatar
I was looking at Bob Richardson's photos of Alpine Tunnel in the Denver Public Library collection. Great stuff, however is this photo reversed/flopped? If it's taken from above the tunnel looking toward the station area, the photo is actually looking about South. As a train would have left the tunnel heading to Gunnison, the turntable stub should branch off from the mainline to the right, and this shows it going to the left. A Google Maps satellite view is attached for comparison.

As many times as I've been to Colorado I have never made it up to the tunnel. A bucket list kinda thing. So folks who have been there in person will be able to answer this in a jiffy.

Thnx,
