Greenock Dellingburn coal yard. (Access to)

On the 1897 OS map of Central Greenock, the access to the Caledonian Railway's Dellingburn yard is shown as being a tunnel under Regent street. I had always assumed that Dellingburn Yard would be worked by horses, but in the App to WT for May 1915, there are instructions for working Locomotives across Dellingburn street and into Dellingburn Power Station. Can anybody throw any light on this mysterious tunnel under Regent Street? Was it large enough to pass a locomotive?
