One of our readers sent in this report from the Old Mill Subway Station that also could go as a possible update into our report on The Lady in Red in Lower Bay Subway Station...
I just finished reading about the haunts at the Old Mill / Humber River area and wanted to send you a gentleman's story. He was working in the Old Mill Subway Station in the early morning hours after the trains had stopped running. He and his coworker, were on track level several hundred feet from the station. They had just finished a repair and the coworker decided he would walk up the tracks to collect the warning work lights. The flashing yellow lights are set 500 hundred feet apart to warn Work Car Drivers that men are on the tracks performing maintenance, etc. The author of the above also wrote to us to mention the reports of the Lady in Red and mention, if nothing else, a possible connection between some ghosts and the TTC Subway.
The gentleman watched him walk up the tunnel and then decided to make himself useful by packing up their tools and equipment. After several minutes of packing up, the gentleman stood up, stretched and then waited for his co-worker to return. The tracks at this point in the subway system are split with large concrete columns between the eastbound and westbound sides.
As he stood there waiting, someone or something directly behind him whispered in the softest voice "hello" in his ear. He said it was almost as if they had sighed and spoke at the same time.
He turned around quickly thinking it was his co-worker who had somehow snuck past him on other tracks and come up behind him, but no one was there.
When he looked down the tracks there was the fellow heading toward him carrying the flashing warning light. Yelling down to the fellow collecting the lamps to hurry, he gathered up their tools and made a bee-line for the lights of Old Mill Station.
When the co-worker finally caught up with him, the gentleman told him what had just happened. They headed up the stairs to ground level and out to their truck.
On the way back to their main station, the co-worker explained to the other fellow that others had similar experiences in that tunnel and there was a story of a woman and child roaming the tracks.
To this day he tells me he can still hear 'her' voice whispering hello.
