The legend is that a woman during the World War II was standing on the train platform in her wedding dress (or perhaps just a long white gown) and she fell off of the platform and was struck by the train. Tunnel 19 is one of many old railway tunnels in the park was is honeycombed with biking/hiking trails.
Legends and Paranormal Activity
Cold gusts of wind as you approach the tunnel, winds further pick up as you reach the center of the tunnel where she is rumored to have fallen to her death, stories of her apparition being seen by train engineers when trains still ran through the tunnel and the archways in the tunnel seem to glow on their own.
