This is about only about twenty feet inside the one thousand feet tunnel. As you can see there was water. A couple of places I could tell the water would be halfway up my leg if I stepped in it. Without boots and a flashlight this was as far as I ventured.
Like any good viewer of Ghost Hunters I did my duty and announced that I was friendly and asked are you here. There was no reply. :)
Years of mineral laden water running down the walls have left them discolored from the once red brick.
I love the different layers eroded away on this section of wall.
Upon leaving I was sitting on a nearby picnic table. The tunnel is part of the West Virginia Rail Trail across abandoned railroad tracks and a pretty spot to take a break. Again I took three images of the same spot. When I downloaded them the third one had those two bright spots of light. I didn't use a flash. The white you see hanging from the ceiling is actually part of the ceiling that is falling. What were the lights? I couldn't say; but. I'm thinking Jason and Grant from Ghost Hunters could probably explain it all away.
I'd like to go back with a pair of boots and a flashlight and walk the entire distance to the other side. Oh, did I mention that there is a cemetery on top of the tunnel? I WILL only be going in daylight.
