Larissa Chelius visits the Bucks County Haunted Tunnel to write her article and do her photo shoot for the Winter Issue of Inspiring Teens Magazine.
The sun was shining bright on our flowing dresses as we walked along the abandon train tracks. Going down the hill Kari, Leslie, my mom, and I felt a drastic change in temperature. All of us instantly got the chills, but we walked on.
As we continued walking the tunnel slowly started to take the spotlight. While we were taking pictures there was an odd scratching sound coming from behind the stone wall. Seconds later a thick white mist began to disperse from the mysterious tunnel. Suddenly, a frog emerged from a pile of leaves.
After some time, I finally aught the frog, but it leapt from my hands and hopped away so that I don’t catch him again. A new frog popped out, then another. There were a lot of frogs...
Little did we know that there was a scarier story behind this tunnel.
The legend goes, a conductor of a train did not know how long the tunnel was. So when he thought it was a good time, he stuck his head out the window, to then be decapitated.
So if you go to the tunnel and put your head on the tracks, it is said that you will hear train sounds. Once you hear these train sounds you have to start running through the entire tunnel. If you don’t run and the train catches up to you, some say that your head will get decapitated just like the conductors.
Kari, Leslie, my mom, and I all were walking along the tracks to get back to our car, when randomly there was a deceased fox body, which was not there before. We all returned to the car spooked. Driving away all we thought about was what each event meant in the supernatural world. For instance; the cold is a sign of ghosts, the scratching could also be a ghost, the mist in addition could also lead to a sign of spirits, the frogs lean towards witches and lastly the fox, which is just unknown.
Overall, I know that someone or something was there that day, we all felt it.
