The Hidden Entrance to the Blue Ghost Tunnel

Part 16 of a collection about the Merritton Train Tunnel that runs under the 3rd Welland Canal. Look forward to more newspaper clippings, photos and videos from what is now known as, The Blue Ghost Tunnel.

This is video of the hidden entrance (east end) of the Blue Ghost Tunnel. Many people have been searching for directions but it really is one of those places that can’t be described. It’s a good hour long hike over streams and through dense forest.

Halloween Safety Tips

The Niagara Regional Police have issued the following Safety Tips:

Since the early 1800’s Halloween has been celebrated on October 31st. Halloween night is traditionally a family oriented evening when children get to dress up and enjoy trick or treating going door to door with their friends in their neighbourhood.

The Niagara Regional Police Service is committed to ensuring our children have a safe and happy Halloween night. Through education, preparation and consideration, everyone can work together to making this Halloween a safe and fun experience for all.

Keeping general safety tips in mind and using common sense can help make the most of your child’s Halloween night. The excitement of children at this time of year sometimes makes them forget to be careful. These simple tips can go a long way in preventing potential tragedies.
