Re: Lost Station in Twin Peaks Tunnel

Yes, I remember seeing this "Ghost" Station on many a ride through the tunnel in the late 70's and 80's and wondering why it had been abandoned. I found a Wikipedia blurb about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eureka_Station

I might be off base here too, but I believe that in the first "Dirty Harry" movie from 1971 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066999/), Eastwood's character takes the street car and gets off at this station in pursuit of the phone calls from Andrew Robinson's character (the killer). I must admit, I have not seen this movie in over 28 years, and it may be at the Forest Hill Station where he exits (or I could just be remembering this all wrong.
