The Twin Train Tunnels

 

  

  

   The twin train tunnels are just south of Cincinnati in Ryland Heights, Kentucky. It’s located on Lambs Ferry road, in an area thats very dark (no street lights), and feels very desolate, though there are homes all up and down the road. According to local legend, a man was killed in one of the tunnels here back in the 1930’s, and if you come here after 10:00 pm, you will see him in or near the tunnels. He is said to have brown hair, and wears a white t-shirt. I don’t know if he was supposed to be someone connected to the railroad company, or just someone walking the tracks. He is usually said to be seen walking towards the tunnel exit, in some versions of the story, he is carrying a lantern.

   I do NOT recommend anyone entering these tunnels. They are private property, owned by CSX, not to mention the dangers of oncoming trains. You would be surprised how quickly they can come up on you.

   I can’t say for sure if anyone really has been killed in either of these tunnels, it’s not hard to believe they have, but I haven’t found any records of it thus far. Haunted or not, as stated above, the area is very dark, and there’s little traffic on the road thats runs in front of the tunnels. Sounds carries and echos here, so what may sound like someone in the tunnels can actually be coming from elsewhere. But, you never know…..

  1. Not too closely related, but a friend of mine eas checking this place out. They were in the tunnels when the train lights came on and the bars lowered to stop traffic at the crossing. They ran out and upon exiting the tunnel the lights stopped and bars lifted with no train ever coming. Paranormal activity, or faulty equipment?

  2. Idk why this place is haunted but it definately is. I go here almost once a night bc I’m so fascinated but the crossings drop at all times with no trains, cars tend to follow you then dissapear into nothing. I have an even weirder experience but no one ever believes me so I never tell it anymore. Needless to say. I know this place is haunted.

    1. Almost two years later and someone decides to reply to your comment. Lovely, I hope you can get back to me ASAP. I would love to hear about your experience or if you ever returned to the site to see if it was just a once in a lifetime thing.
      Thank you,

  3. The place is definitely haunted me and 3 other friends decided one night to check the tunnels out we live in Florence so not too far of a drive, the night we went out it was about 10 or 11 o’clock at night and we started walking the tracks and doing an evp session we got about half way in and decided to walk back to the car, we sat for about 5 or 10 mins and low and behold a train came through after the train passed we left and continued on our way back home. Once home we listened to the evp and got some really straightforward stuff on of them being clear as day “it’s coming” sounded like from a man’s voice.

  5. I grew up right by the tunnels my entire life on Locust Pike. The tracks from the tunnels went right through our front yard. I have never seen or heard anything near the tunnels. However the cars disappearing is likely as most homes on Lambs ferry and Locust Pike are off of hidden driveways in wooded areas. I also know many locals like to mess with people as the folks there do not care much for strangers parked blocking the driveway or dumping trash in our driveways as we have dealt with quite often. These are not just old gravel roads they are driveways to peoples homes so anyone that wants to go ghost hunting down there ask someones permission before parking in the driveway.

  6. my family owns over 130 acres of land where these tracks are, its a family estate… all 3 brothers who live in the property with their uncle were born at the farm house (we call it the big house). The family name is Trapp. I have taken many pictures out there and had orbs appear, my great uncle has shown me a Indian cemetery thats on the property. The tunnels are creepy and dangerous. And as Sabrina stated they are private driveways, and I can tell you they are all very nice people, however, my great uncle is 85 and will fire a shot in the air and then ask questions lol… However, since I am family, I can get access to other parts of the property which reaches from the right of the road to the river and from the left of the road to the top of the hill. so the land that stretches across the top f the tunnels belong to my family. I will find out any info and try to get answers to questions anyone may have…..I can say that growing up there, and having my kids grow up being on the land alot, we have not seen anything that has scared us….

  7. Not sure if you would say it’s faulty equipment or haunted coincidence. But I live in the adjacent road and grew up in the area and have been there when the lights and arms have been down for no reason as well as when they have not worked and should have. I have always been extremely cautious crossing those tracks and stop in between and look before crossing each individual one.
