RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - A VCU professor took students from the Northstar Academy on a tour of the Church Hill train tunnel Halloween afternoon. Once there he told them  ghost stories.

"There are stories about a vampire running in and out of that tunnel," Professor Walter Griggs said. "Coming over here on Halloween to talk about vampires and noises and things that go bump in the night, we thought it was a good idea."

The students have studied the tunnel, including stories that it may be haunted.
