Pictured: The way to the final resting place of many fine Valles Mines citizens was through the old railroad tunnel. Tunnel Station Cemetery is located 600 feet south of the tunnel on your right, west of the railroad right of way ( or see map below). Although preliminary excavation to reach this area has begun, please take care as some rough ground remains and 4WD is still required. Plans are under way to reopen our cemeteries for new burials.
