In culture after culture, people believe that the soul lives on after death, that rituals can change the physical world and divine the truth, and that illness and misfortune are caused and alleviated by spirits, ghosts, saints ... and gods.

Louisville and Nashville Railroad Train Tunnel at Tunnel Springs, Alabama

Tunnel Springs, Alabama has an 840 foot abandoned rail tunnel. The masonry tunnel was completed in 1899 and abandoned in the 1990's. A spring that was hit when digging the tunnels exits at the northeastern end of the tunnel gives the community of Tunnel Springs its name. Its rumored that there were more then a few deaths during the construction.

This photo below was sent to us by Colin Sands who discovered it while editing pictures he had taken in an abandoned railway tunnel in Tunnel Springs, Alabama. A great capture of a strange light anomaly. Let us know what you think.

Location - Fort Qu’Appelle Sanatorium pt.II

Our return trip to Fort San revealed the Sanatorium to be in a state of demolition. Not many of the original buildings were left standing by this time.

Here are some photos we took of what was left. During our exploration that day my wife heard what she says was a child crying but to me it sounded like something on the building moving in the wind. Later after reviewing out pictures I was able to capture one photo which appears to have a orb in the bottom area.

Its sad to see such a landmark, of Sunday drives around the lake and it's haunted past, fall to progress but we will always have it's stories to share.

What appears to be an orb in the bottom portion of the photo.

The Queen Mary at Long Beach, CA

Great video of a photo capture on the Queen Mary.

MS Queen Mary is an ocean liner that sailed the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967 for Cunard Line (then Cunard White Star Line). Built by John Brown and Company, Clydebank, Scotland, she was designed to be the first of Cunard's planned two-ship weekly express service from Southampton to Cherbourg to New York, in answer to the mainland European superliners of the late twenties and early thirties. Queen Mary and her slightly larger and younger running mate RMS Queen Elizabeth commenced this two-ship service after their release from World War II troop transport duties and continued it for two decades until Queen Mary's retirement in 1967.

The ship is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is permanently berthed in Long Beach, California serving as a museum ship and hotel. The Queen Mary celebrated the 70th anniversary of her launch in both Clydebank with Clydebank Restoration Trust and in Long Beach during 2004, and the 70th anniversary of her maiden voyage in 2006.

Many areas are rumored to be haunted. Reports of hearing little children crying in the nursery room, actually used as the third class playroom, and a mysterious splash noise in the drained first class swimming pool are cited. In 1966, 18 year old fireman John Pedder was crushed by a watertight door in the engine room during a drill, and his ghost is said to haunt the ship.

Hey there everyone! Here is a YouTube video with an interesting partial manifestation of what appears to be a walking figure. It can be seen at 2:14 on the video. Have a look.
