Weston, West Virginia - A Ghost Train Haunts Flinderation Tunnel

A long time ago near Weston, West Virginia B & O railroad workers were working on tracks inside of tunnel #2, otherwise known as Flinderation tunnel.  A train traveling at a much too high of speed came roaring through the tunnel catching the workers off guard.  One of the workers managed to escape into a cutout escape hollow.   The other two workers were mutilated and chopped to pieces as the train ran over them.

To this day on occasion it is said that you can see a light appear in a fog at the end of the tunnel followed buy a huge gust of wind as if it were a train that went blowing by.  Other folks have witnessed various plasma orbs floating through the tunnel as well as hearing voices in the tunnel when no body is around.

  4. beleive it,it was a real trip living there in the late 50s and early 70s,erie,mysterious,alot of things happened there that can not be explained by any means.yes there is a grave yard atop of the tunnel,some one that wanted to do research on the topic should check who all was buried there may shed a little light on the subject,and who all lived around there at the time periods.living around there during my childhood and later teens the people around the tunnel area was just as mysterious as the happenings around there.neighbors stayed to themselves,the most of them would never come out after dark not even for walks on summer nites.It was like the people lived in fear around there,you ask questions pertaining to the tunnel or if they heard anything odd through the nite,they would scuff and make a weid face and walk away and say nothing.yes its an unsual place that for sure,most people dont know this but at the tunnel entrance on lake floyd side you get on top of tunnel walk back 15 to 30 feet to the right side there is a cubby hole if dirt didnt fill it over you can crawl through and inside is a ajasment tunnel its inormous inside it goes quite aways back in me and my brother only went in only a couple 100 feet,exploring one day is how we found it,good find if you can locate the hole,when we were in there there was soup cans,old ragged cloths,bur lap bags,make shift fire places,where the track drifters stayed on and off at one time,in that tunnel it would take you straight under the grave yard.you find it you would be simply amazed.its awesome.Happy hunting to all.by R.S.CLEVENGER.adventurer and explorer.

  10. Hello every one! The tunnel you are talking about is an awesome visit! My family has always owned the land on top of the tunnel, and around the graveyard! My Great Grandfather had a farm on top of the tunnel, and his house was below on the Salem side. The "hole" they are talking about above was a cave made for the workers...later occupied by drifters. When the workers used the cave, they would sleep in shifts, take lunch breaks, and ect...My Grandmother walked those tracks all the time..While the tracks were in use....even at night! I have been there many times, and it does have its creepy moments! But growing up on that hill makes you a little incapable of being too afraid of it! Walks are allways enjoyed by are family. I guess it's a feeling of belonging there!
