    This old rail tunnel is the site where a young woman hung herself and apparently she haunts it to this date (hence the name "Screaming Tunnel"). I've been told that the house just across the way is haunted as well.

    Hey, bean - #1 is really nice! I prefer the wider view than the second, closer-in angle. I like how it captures more information on the other side of the tunnel as opposed to the blown-out version of the second image. It's a really good, snowy, cold image. Good work!

    How does one hand themself from a tunnel? :p Seems like every little town has something like this, we do!

    Anywho...like the picture, definately some keepers! Nice contrast.

    Nice shots! I prefer the first one. Its amazing how a story can change the feel of a picture all together. Very cool. Where is this "screaming tunnel"??

    lol don't ask me, I showed this picture to a friend and she told me that story

    It's located about 10-15 minutes west of Niagara Falls, like 200 feet off a major highway. And actually a railway runs above the tunnel.

    A word or not, I'll take that compliment! :D

    I like both shots for different reasons: for the first one, I'm like terri. I like how we can see what's on the other side of the tunnel, for that matter I also like being able to see more of what's on this side - the graffiti. For the second one, I like the tunnel itself - the construction of it - the stone work ... very nice.

    I like them both but the second one is the one that grabs me. I think it is very much opinion on these two. They are both good. I just personally don't like how everything seems to be in the center of the picture on the first one. But that is totally my taste and well.. you can't please everyone...

    The view from the ground up in the second frame gives the tunnel a more majestic, larger scale. Great texture.
