I don't think the single-track tunnel is more of a perceptual thing rather than an actual service restrictor. It is a relatively short tunnel with sufficient signals and track on either end to handle queuing up for closely timed trains. There just isn't the desire to manage the traffic effectively. After all, this really isn't that busy a freight line. From what I understand, that stretch currently averages six to nine freight runs a day. And, as Jon pointed out in his article, this station handled 26 passenger trains a day back when it was used to its proper potential.
