THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of the haunted railroad tracks.

Near San Antonio, Texas is an intersection that is famous for a tragic bus accident that happened many decades ago. The story varies a little in different versions but the basics are the same and the story is believed to be true.

Near San Juan Mission in the 1930s or 1940s, a bus full of school children was heading down a road when it stalled on railroad tracks. A train coming full speed smashed into the bus before all of the children had time to escape. Ten children and the bus driver were all killed. Today, any car that is stopped near the track will be pushed across. It’s said that it is the children’s ghosts that are pushing the cars across the tracks, so no one will need to suffer a horrible death such as they did.

This has been tested many times and the site is still one that has many of the curious coming to see what will happen. People drive to the sight and stop their car twenty or thirty yards away from the tracks. Some will even turn the car off completely to ensure that the car is not working on any of its own mechanisms. The car is pushed up the slight incline and across the tracks, beginning slowly and then gradually becoming quicker and quicker until the car is considered at a safe point.

But that is not where the story ends. It’s said that if a light powder is spread over the car’s back bumper, one can see the handprints of the children who have helped the car to safety. Many have attested to the fact that the cars are pushed across the tracks and that handprints can be seen when powder is spread across the back bumper.

Many others, though certainly not everyone who visits the site, have also experienced strange happenings in the area. Some of these have included hearing children’s voices, actually having car trouble while on the tracks, and hearing crying. Some have taken photos of the area and when developed, have noticed figures in the photos that were not there when the photo was taken.

It has been made clear that this accident did indeed happen. That fact has been documented and accepted as a true part of history. Whether or not the other happenings caused by the children’s ghosts are part of the true story has yet to be determined. Just like any other ghost story, it’s up to one to believe what they choose, and if nothing else, it makes a great story.
