Re: Two questions about Alpine Tunnel - First Question

November 19, 2019 07:32PM
Thank you Stewart and the rest of the boys for the info on this remote place. So if I roughly understand the everything, originally there was just the stone engine house and the stone tenements located next door for railway workers. The frame boarding house was built after the damage to the stone building. The boarding house was run by a proprietor, his wife, and a servant until the line closed in 1910.

Ok, so I have a couple more questions. The original tenements, were the railway workers on their own for food and whatnot, or was there a proprietor or cooks stationed there also? Lastly is there any record of how or if they rotated workers in and out of that location? I would have to think that to be on a permanent assignment there could be very challenging especially during a long winter. Talk about cabin fever.

Thanks again

Brett
