Bob Diamond, the tourmaster of the Atlantic Avenue train tunnel is positive that there’s a locomotive hidden under Brooklyn Heights. The New York Times profiles him and his new quest:
New York Times: In Brooklyn… : Behind a wall in the tunnel, near Atlantic Avenue and Hicks Street, he believes, there is a steam locomotive lying on its side like an abandoned toy train, in “pristine condition, a virtual time capsule.” And he wants to dig it up.
Mr. Diamond’s passion for the project has drawn the interest of a movie director named Trey Nelson, who is working with an entity called Hungry Man Entertainment to film a documentary about Mr. Diamond’s quest. If all goes well, the project could take the story of the man and the tunnel into the stratosphere.
