A friend went to collage in Terre Haute, IN. A historic hotel was being torn down. My friend is an antique collector and history buff. He knew from seeing pictures that there was Coke bottle openers screwed to the wall in each room. He and a friend devised a plan to get in and steal a couple of bottle openers. They bought hard hats and some cheap tools. They wore flannel shirts and blue jeans. They snuck in on the side of the building away from where most of the work was being done to prep the building for demolition. They got in, got there bottle openers and got out. They didn't run across anyone working in the building. I asked if they were wearing work boots. My buddy said no. I told him that would have been a tip off if they had run into anyone working there.

I asked if they had considered asking the demo company if they could buy a couple bottle openers. He said they thought about it, but what they did was more fun.

Good story, sounds dangerous though, these kind of demo jobs and this tunnel was intact, but they opened the top to fill it. It was all brick, barrel vault, round top arch ceiling, I was able to dislodge one brick from the ceiling, for a souvenir, just thinking about the steam locomotives and the like that rolled through this tunnel, there is footage of it on you tube, its incredible realizing how it is today, but for 100 years the railroad was prevalent, wish that line was still going today, nice convenience, the station was a beautiful building too.

Yours truly in the photo LOL, this was a NY Central line tunnel.

Brick I took was the 8th one over from the left, 2nd course, small piece missing, bottom right, slightly dislodged tilted downward. I certainly was not going under this cavity, that brick was within reach, probably stable, but with the disturbance, who knows. Unreal how many times I've driven a tractor trailer over this old sealed off tunnel, it was still completely intact since the late 50's.
