Mystical Legends of BAM

Who has not heard of BAM – Baikal-Amur Railway
the construction of which began in the spring of 1972, after
What poured here a huge stream of youth from all over the Soviet Union,
since this building was announced – the All-Union Komsomol
shock construction of the century.

All these young men and women who were heading east to
mostly for romance, not even imagined that
construction of BAM began in the late thirties by forces
Bamlag prisoners, many of whom have completed their earthly here

Probably, this railway would certainly be
built in the first half of the twentieth century, even on the bones
prisoners, but the Great War that began in 1941 prevented
Patriotic War. However, even a few years of construction
BAM in those unbearable conditions of cold, hunger and hard labor,
the prisoners were put in, turned into terrible
the consequences faced by the participants of the All-Union
Komsomol construction of the century.

Suffice it to recall the words of the psychic from Komsomolsk-on-Amur
Yuri Vasilievich Paramonov, who laid in the seventies
on BAM its first sections:

The aura of those places was just awful because here
Thousands of prisoners died as martyrs. In my sight
now and then there were thin figures with haggard faces and bottomless
eyes full of hopelessness and agony. It seemed like all this land
soaked with sweat and blood, groans and cries. Probably why BAM
gave us so many creepy legends about any devilry happening in
these places. Unfortunately, all these legends are not fiction,
Bamov’s youth of the seventies faced with something prohibitive
terrible and incomprehensible, especially incomprehensible to them – ingrained
atheists and materialists of the Soviet era.

BAM Ghost Train

The builders of the Baikal-Amur Mainline of the seventies clashed with
many mystical phenomena, among which a special place occupies
ghost train They say it is associated with a real story. In 1940
prisoners who worked in the area between Yanchukan and Kichera, not
enduring terrible conditions of slave labor and content, raised
rebellion, after which a steam locomotive with three
carriages hoping to break into the boundless Yakutia, where it was easy
get lost and then escape through this land to freedom.

Bamlag’s manual used aircraft, bombing a steam locomotive and
narrow-gauge railway itself, which he tried to break into Sahu. Soon
the war began, and the construction was abandoned, but the local Yakuts began
to notice since then the ghost train that suddenly appeared in their
the edges – the engine and three cars.

The most striking thing is that the team of Dmitry Zarechnev in 1973
ran into that ill-fated narrow-gauge railway. To the surprise of the builders,
railway track, abandoned in the taiga for thirty years,
was in perfect condition: wooden sleepers, as if just
soaked in creosote, seemed completely new, everything
metal parts did not have a hint of rust, and the rails
looked so polished as if they were being followed daily
endless compositions.

The military and various special services of the USSR dismissed this
information, only specifying that no narrow gauge railway in that deaf
taiga generally can not be. So it was, especially since
mysterious railway line led to “nowhere”, as it turned out
meticulous members of the Komsomol. After 26 kilometers she rested against the mound,
overgrown with cedars. Who supported the abandoned narrow gauge railway, and
remained a mystery. Probably the one who went on it – the ghost locomotive
and his team, which was seen here not only Yakuts, but also
atheists Komsomol …

BAM tunnels leading to other worlds

During the construction of BAM, 142 different bridges were erected and
eight tunnels were laid. And each such object had some kind of
mystical story.

For example, from deep cracks of the arch of the Baikal tunnel in front
mysterious yellow fireballs floated up in a flood of groundwater.
The tunnel on the site Vitim – Chara Kodarsky got a ghost
whom the sinkers dubbed the White Shaman, since he was his
appearance warned builders of approaching earthquakes
– and never wrong.

The longest in the USSR turned out to be the most mysterious.�
Severomuisky tunnel, which was laid for almost a quarter of a century. In
time of this construction there was a breakthrough quicksand, as a result
which killed a lot of people, some were immured
stone fragments. And with them, as they said after
release from the dam, just mystical things were happening. So,
one of the workers, trying to find their own way out of the dam,
stumbled upon a metal door, all green from mold.
He could not open it, but he heard something happening behind it,
some kind of life He tried to knock, to call for help – no answer
followed …

A year later, an accident occurred in this tunnel – collapse
grounds, as a result of which a wide gutter was exposed, leaving
deep into the mountains. From that black depths came sounds, like someone
there below worked with jackhammers. Go down to this damn
no one dared den …

By the way, we note that currently the Baikal-Amur
the highway works, though already at the limit of its throughput
opportunities. Now it is being upgraded in order to increase
freight traffic along this unique railway line up to fifty
million tons per year. Do railway workers meet on it today?
something mystical? Yes, and all the time, one “damn bridge” of which
stands on which all sorts of trouble constantly occur,
why machinists (just in case) reduce the speed on it to 20
kilometers per hour. But that’s not the point: you can meet on the bridge
real devils that climb onto the roof of a diesel locomotive,
peeking through the driver’s window and sometimes even arranging on rails
the real bedlam – for this reason, the bridge is called
�”Damn” …
