Big Savage Tunnel
When the train tracks from Pittsburgh to Cumberland, Maryland became the Great Allegheny Passage biking and hiking trail, the Big Savage Tunnel's deplorable condition was a major obstacle for bicyclists trying to connect with the C&O Canal trail into Washington, D.C. This mini-documentary follows several years in efforts to restore the tunnel - making it a landmark stop along the bike trail. From writer/producer David Solomon, Camera & Editing: Paul Ruggieri.
