Railroad Tunnel
There is an old railroad tunnel in eastern Kentucky that is said to haunted by the ghost of a worker who was killed there. When the rails were first being laid, a tunnel had to be dug through a mountain. While the work was going on, a worker was sawing a board on a high scaffolding. He was constructing a frame that would be used to pour the concrete for the tunnel supports. Below him, more concrete was being poured into a deep trench where the actual rail lines would rest. It would provide a solid support for the steel rails.
Suddenly the worker lost his footing and fell into the loose mixture below him. His friends and co-workers tried to rescue him, but he was quickly lost in the deep trench as the concrete hardened around him.
As the years passed, on nights of the full moon, like tonight, it is said the screams of this worker can be heard echoing from inside the tunnel. Some even claim to see a saw protruding from the concrete rail bed...only to see it vanish before their eyes.
The Kentucky River lies near the tunnel and fishermen claim to hear sawing and then a long,terrifying scream coming from inside the passageway.
