The ghastly history of the long train tunnel between Croydon and Gatwick Airport
Whether you've got the train from Croydon to Gatwick Airport or you use the rail line to get to work in Redhill you will know the long tunnel that sends your journey into darkness.

You'll also know the Merstham Tunnel - between Coulsdon South and Merstham stations - because your phone loses signal for ages.

Without Twitter to scroll through or the latest WhatsApp group message to read you actually look up and wonder "why are we going through a tunnel?" Or "what could we possibly be passing under between Croydon and Redhill?"

Few passengers - even those who travel on the Brighton Main Line every day - will know the answers.

And even fewer are likely to know the sinister history of the Merstham Tunnel, or that it was the scene of the first possible murder on a train in the UK.
