Blue Ghost Tunnel- Merritton

Description
This tunnel is creepy. I cannot profess to know much of its history, although I do know it is an abandoned rail tunnel that was built in the 1800s. It is called the Blue Ghost? Tunnel because it is said to be haunted by blue wispy spirits - possibly the spirits of railmen who died in a head on train collision just outside this tunnel in the early 20th century, or of people who were buried in a nearby cemetery that was flooded over not too long ago.

Haven't been there in years, we used to go for quite the walk to get there and it was well worth it. By the time we got there we had ourselves so worked up about the "blue ghost" it was quite the thrill. Nice to see the more recent photos.

Have you tried to go down into it since it was gated? My cousin tried and he said there was no access in there now. He walked down and everything was blocked off

They just gated the main access road off Glendale Ave. You will have to park at the Good Eats Diner across from the GM plant and walk down. Does anybody know a better parking spot or access point?

@buster...that's good news. Looks like it could be interesting.
