    5 Hauntings on the Railroad

    August 19, 2019


    Railroads made this country. The history of the railroads is deep and,
    not surprisingly, sometimes haunted. Thanks to mysteriousheartland.com and ghostcitytours.com
    for helping us come up with this list of hauntings on the railroad. The Albino Tracks
    In St. Clair County, Illinois, a long abandoned set of tracks came to be known as the Albino
    Tracks. The legend goes that in the 1800s a mysterious
    epidemic ripped through the area. The locals, being a superstitious bunch, blamed
    a pair of albino children that lived nearby. Some of the townsfolk took matters into their
    own hands and kidnapped the children. To end the curse upon the land, the abductors
    tied the children to the railroad tracks and watched as a train ran them over. From that time, visitors to the tracks reported
    ghostly activity. Some whose cars got stuck on the tracks said
    that their vehicles were pushed by unseen hands to safety before a train came. The locals believe it was the albino children
    saving others from their fate. Today the tracks are gone, but it seems like
    the ghosts remain. The River Styx Bridge
    With a name like River Styx, it’s no wonder supernatural stories swirl around this bridge. The legend that surrounds the bridge near
    Rittman, Ohio tells the heroic tale of railroad engineer Alexander Logan. A Scot by birth, Logan came to America and
    devoted his career to the railroad, eventually rising to the rank of engineer. One spring day, something went wrong with
    his speeding train and the locomotive jumped the tracks and overturned, crushing Alexander
    to death. Newspaper reports from the time noted that
    he had time to escape the doomed train, but stayed at his post in an effort to save his
    passengers. To this day, if you find yourself near the
    River Styx Bridge at night, you may see a ghostly vision of the fiery crash that took
    Alexander’s life play out before it vanishes and you’re left alone once more. Tara Bridge
    Near Tara, Iowa there is a old railroad bridge that some people have taken to calling Terror
    Bridge. If it is to be believed, the history of this
    bridge is downright horrific. It’s said that a mother took her children
    to the tracks and, in a fit of insanity, threw her children under a speeding train as it
    passed. Today, if you stop your car near the bridge,
    the mother’s ghost appears and drags you out of your car, throwing you on the tracks
    just as she did her children. Another legend talks of a farmer who lived
    nearby. One day, frustrated, he cursed the land and
    suddenly dropped dead. From that time on, people have reported being
    chased by a frightening apparition that some claim to be the ghost of the farmer. Satan’s Bridge
    I mean, the place is called Satan’s Bridge! As the story goes, this now abandoned railroad
    bridge was the home to three mysterious deaths. The first was a man who was struck by a train
    while walking along the bridge, falling to his death. A second story tells of a man who was lynched
    nearby. The third is the story of a homeless man who
    lived below the bridge. One day, he was found dead, a look of terror
    twisting his face. Between these three legends, it’s no wonder
    that Satan’s Bridge is reported to be haunted. The Ghost Children of San Antonio
    The strange tale of the ghost children of San Antonio, Texas has become a well known
    one over the years. The tragic story begins with a nun driving
    a school bus full of children home one moonless night. The bus became disabled upon the railroad
    tracks near Villamain and Shane. The nun tried to get the bus started again,
    but it was in vain. Because of the darkness of the night and the
    burned out light on the locomotive, she didn’t see the train barreling down upon the bus
    until it was too late. The bus was struck and all of the children
    were killed. The nun was thrown from the bus and injured,
    but survived. She recovered physically, but her guilt overwhelmed
    her. One night, she drove her car to the site of
    the accident and parked on the same spot on the tracks where the bus had been. There she sat, waiting for a train to come
    and end her grief. In due time, a train appeared and raced toward
    her car. Then, in the darkness, the nun heard the sounds
    of small children around her. She looked, but the night was empty except
    for her and the oncoming train. To her shock, her car began to roll forward
    on its own and just cleared the tracks before the train roared past. When she got out of the car, she looked on
    her rear bumper and noticed the tiny handprints of children. Overcome by the miracle, the nun devoted her
    life to helping orphans and the less fortunate until the day she died. Today, it is said, and I don’t recommend
    doing this, that you can park your car on or near the tracks at night where the accident
    occurred. After a time, you can get out and take a look
    at your bumper and you may find the handprints of ghost children who are determined to ensure
    another tragedy on the tracks is avoided.

    The Legend of the Haunted Railroad Tracks in San Antonio, Texas!

    August 13, 2019


    In this area, it has a legend haunted story! In 1940s or earlier, There was a school bus carrying around 10 kids to the school. The engine was broken down while the bus was on the railroad! A bus driver was puzzled and tried to figure out a way to solve the engine issue. Apparently, a bus driver didn’t realize the bus was on the railroad. Then, he saw a train coming and it was too late to save kids or himself. The train crashed the school bus and everybody were killed. So what’s happening next now? Now, I’m getting a baking soda. What is this for? We’ll take a car on the railroad, then we will wait and it will eventually move. Maybe a car was being pushed by kids who were killed in the train crash. You might see kids’ handprints on those baking soda. Maybe they’re trying to save us from getting killed. You see the sign says no stop on the railroad, which means they know people do come here to confirm the experience. Now, I’m taking my car on the railroad. Justin will set a camera tripod to capture the entire action. I’m here to make sure that we’re not getting hit by a train. It’s what terrified me the utmost right now. I have that imagination what if it will hit us or not. You funny. I know you’re doing it. I’m parking here. We’re giving it a try again. Now it’s moving backward. I have to admit it’s the ideal spot for feeling tension or terrifying a bit. We were nervous about cars driving through us. I think it’s moving on its own. I didn’t do anything lol. Let’s check the baking soda. What! It’s true! We did several tests. Some did move on its own. We just had to see if there are any kid hands. And hands are right there! The total is 10 hands. I think it’s more than just ten hands. (Joking: not true about hands) (There are two cars testing the railroad now. I just learned that there is 2 inches horizontal off. When you park on the railroad, it will stay a while but it will move later. Why? It has a steep a bit. Once it’s moved, then everybody immediately assumed it is pushed by kids!
