    I have this friend and my friend wants to know how many officially FRA recognized tunnels there are for each of the following railroads: UP, BNSF, CSX and NS.

    I would answer this question for him, but he like me is ignorant of such statistics and does not know where to find an answer. Any assistance will make my friend very happy.

    JD,All rail tunnels are recognized by FRA,NTSB,State DOT and local agencies.After all they are part of the railroad infrastructure.

    I figured they were, but what has me puzzled is in particular with SP in its dying days sold and/or leased a lot of rail to shortline roads or outright abandoned the lines. So, with SP being assimilated into UP how many tunnels does UP actually have in light of all of the acquisitions of the last 20 years.
