Situated in Poblacion, Aringay, La Union, this 500 meter tunnel, 7.6 meters wide, and with a depth of 4.5 meters, was made in 1913 during the American regime. Intended for the trains of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) bound for Baguio City, it was later abandoned by the Commonwealth Govenment because of the impending Second World War. Similar structures could also be found in Tuba, Benguet, which were supposed to be part of the ambitious railway system.
