Braswell was the location of the only tunnel on Southern Railway's (now Norfolk Southern Railway) Chattanooga to Atlanta main line. The tunnel was bypassed in 1979 by cutting through Braswell mountain slightly to the east. The tunnel is still there, but is overgrown with vegetation and is a safety hazard due to snake infestation. Another nearby tunnel, the Brushy Mountain tunnel at Divide, is currently used by bicyclists and joggers as a part of the Georgia/Alabama Silver Comet Trail[4].
