San Antonio Ghosts Tracks

If you were a kid living in San Antonio, Texas and during the month of October you were about as sure to have heard this story before.

Stories vary from story teller to story teller but this is the version I have heard. In the early 1940s there was a bus of kids on its way back from a field trip when the bus had stalled in the middle of the tracks.

The driver tried to get the bus going but it would not go at all. Legend has it that the bus was struck by train and all who were on that bus died that day.

Many years have passed and many say that those kids who died that day will push any car that is on those very tracks off so that the fate of that person will not meet theirs. 

Legends state that around the tracks are the names of those who passed as a memorial to them.

During halloween its a hot spot for people to try and put powder on the back of their car to see the finger prints of the little kids.

Much of the legend has been debunked as just a story by Ghost Hunters I believe and other reality ghost tv shows.. The pushing of the car is a mere optical illusion which looks like your car is uphill but it has a slight slope which allows the car in neutral to roll down.

(Just be forewarned it is illegal to park your car on the tracks. You will get a ticket.)

So if you have an itching to go by the track this is your time. Just be warned, it is illegal to park your car on the tracks.

If you haven't heard of the ghost tracks here are a few blog posts on the tracks.

This was an interesting find reported by my SA. In Seguin a hidden tunnel was discovered when construction began within the city.

Officals say the tunnel may have been built as an underground railroad. Tunnel measured around 71 feet.
