At least 26 people have met their death near it and along the surrounding tracks and tunnel. Some come back to haunt the living and maybe pull them into their grasp. Theodore Lawhead is one of the ghosts lurking there. His train crashed into another in 1880. Even as far back as the middle 1880s, trainmen saw his ghostly form carrying a lantern toward the tunnel.
