Where is the haunted train track located in Texas? The one where you leave your car in neutral and it gets pushed up hill?

I don't remember the location, but they surveyed the site and found out it was an optical illusion, it's actually downhill, and the ghosts are really just plain old gravity.

Does not sound like it.

"Pacheco also succeeded with the powder test, having dusted the back of her black station wagon with talcum. "I was so excited, I got out to check the back of my car and there were the tiny handprints! Plain and clear, and so, so tiny! The prints were so perfect, you could see the lines of the palms, and the swirls of the fingerprints!"

She was so thrilled with the results that Pacheco repeated the experiment, with even more startling results: "Up and over the hill again," she says. "I got out, and there were several little handprints, not only on the back of the car, but down the sides toward the back doors! And there was one big handprint on the side! (The sides had also been wiped down.) Could this be a handprint from the bus driver? That's what we think.."

the train wreck that supposedly caused it never even happened in Texas - it was in Salt Lake City.

Its in San Antonio, I forget how you get there, I had gone up to San Antonio with my girlfriend and her dad lives up there he showed us the spot.

I vaguely remember, that you get off Military Dr, and turn on some other road, and then turn into some residential neighborhoods, and a ways in you will end up where the tracks were.

When we got there there were about 4 other cars doing it too.

It was pretty interesting.

think about every state has one of those folklores.if i remember right there is on in Ohio.
theshadowlands.net/places/ohio.htm


Cortland - 5 Points - 5 roads, all of which have some kind of mysterious things happen. On one road there is a haunted farm house. On Another, people were hung and the ropes are still there. On another, there is an underpass, 2 men got killed because their car had stalled, they went to push the car up the hill through the underpass, the car rolled back on them, crushing them. So now its said if you put your car in Neutral and roll back down the hill, the boys push your car up the hill.




Hartford - 5-points - It is said that if you turn down the diagonal road off of 5-points and go under the bridge and put your car in neutral, you will feel it being pushed up the hill by ghosts of children who died there in a car crash. Also if you go down the other diagonal road and come to train tracks and look down you will see an on coming train. Along with the tracks there will be a house beside it which is haunted by a woman who was killed there

Dang, my Dad took me there on a cross-country trip from east coast to west coast...

It did roll after putting it in neutral, but now I think it was an optical illusion, making the street look like going up rather than down, I was 10 at the time...

NC has the 'Brown Mountain Lights' , another weird thing...

Puting your car in neutral on the tracks and waiting to be "pushed" has some darwin potential.

The one we visited was a street next to the tracks, I will have to find it again and do some 'vestigating now I am a wee bit past 10 yo'...
