Haunted rail tun­nel caught on film

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

The sight of the mask caused a scare Mys­te­ri­ous go­ings on in a rail­way tun­nel in Glen­farg have been caught on film by a ex­plorer with a spirit for ad­ven­ture.

Dundee film­maker Don­ald Sut­tie (35) and his wife had planned to ex­plore the aban­doned rail­way tun­nel in south­ern Perthshire on Sun­day, Novem­ber 5, but the pair claim they got more than they bar­gained for.

Don­ald ex­plained:“I’d ini­tially vis­ited the tun­nel the week be­fore and there was noth­ing there. I only had my small torch, so I didn’t go in, but the area in front was empty and the gates were tied to­gether.

“I went back on Sun­day with my wife, armed with my high-power torch, and I saw that the gates were no longer tied to­gether.

“There were two lanterns on ei­ther side of the en­trance to the tun­nel which weren’t there be­fore, and a pump­kin as well. I could make out the word‘death’crudely writ­ten on a win­dow box which sat out­side.

“I could tell that kids had been up to some­thing so I started film­ing on my phone.”

In­side, the pitch-black pass had been filled with skele­tons and ghosts built from Hal­lowe’en dec­o­ra­tions, dot­ted spo­rad­i­cally through­out the length of the tun­nel.

The dun­geon en­thu­si­ast was im­pressed by the cre­ativ­ity of who­ever set up the scene, but one par­tic­u­lar sight caught Don­ald’s eye.

He con­tin­ued:“The part that re­ally stood out for me was the mask in the sleep­ing bag. The way it’s hid­den be­tween the logs is re­ally un­nerv­ing.

“It’s to­tally unique. I’ve been ex­plor­ing Cold War and Sec­ond World War bunkers and un­der­ground tun­nels like this since I was a kid, and I’ve never seen any­thing like it. Some­one had went to a lot of trou­ble to scare peo­ple on Hal­lowe’en.

“The way the tun­nel has been dec­o­rated is re­ally elab­o­rate. To get all the bits and bobs out there has taken time and ef­fort, let alone the heavy win­dow box which must have been re­ally awk­ward to move.”

With tongue firmly in cheek, Don­ald added even­tu­ally es­caped after lit­er­ary find­ing the light at the end of the tun­nel.

The‘sur­vivor’edited his footage The en­trance to the tun­nel be­fore up­load­ing the video to YouTube, and has racked up al­most 500 views al­ready.
