Henry's tunnel

Henry's Tunnel is a nickname given to a tunnel on the Main Line near Ballahoo.


In 1922, Henry stopped in the tunnel during a rainstorm, refusing to come out on the basis of ruining his "lovely green paint and red stripes". After trying many methods to make him come out, The Fat Controller decided to leave Henry in the tunnel as punishment, taking up the rails leading into the tunnel and bricking up the entrance. Henry remained in the tunnel for a few months before being let out to help Edward pull Gordon's express after the latter's safety valve burst.
