So, I'm sure we have all heard the story about the haunted railroad tracks in San Antonio, well I thought I would also talk about it here!
Back in the 1930s or 1940s, a school bus full of children was making
its way down the road and toward the intersection when it stalled on the
railroad tracks. A speeding train smashed into the bus, killing 10 of
the children and the bus driver. Since that dreadful accident many years
ago, any car stopped near the railroad tracks will be pushed by unseen
hands across the tracks to safety. It is the spirits of the children,
they say, who push the cars across the tracks to prevent a tragedy and
fate like their own.
Even today, cars line up at the haunted intersection to see if the
legend is true. The driver stops the cars some 20 to 30 yards from the
tracks and puts the car in neutral gear. Some even turn off their
engines. And sure enough, even though it appears that the road is on an
upward grade, the car begins to roll. It rolls slowly first, then
steadily gaining speed - seemingly of its own accord and against gravity
- up and over the tracks. This has been tested time and time again, and
cars really do roll up and over the tracks - every time.
But that's not all. The second half of this legend is that if a light
powder - like talcum or baby powder - is sprinkled over the car's trunk
and rear bumper, tiny fingerprints and handprints will appear - the
prints of the ghost children pushing the car. Many who have tried it
swear that indeed they can see the evidence of small children's
handprints in the powder.
I found a video online that proves this could be true...
