The Haunted Railroad Crossing
By: Mrs. Gutierrez’s 4th grade Class
Back in the 1930’s or 1940’s, 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 accident many years ago, any car that stopped near the railroad tracks will be pushed by tiny hands across the railroad tracks to safety. It’s the spirits of the children that don’t want it to happen to anyone else. Even today, cars line up at the haunted tracks to see if the legend is true. This has been tested time and time again and cars really do roll up and over the tracks every time. That’s not all people say if you sprinkle baby powder over the cars trunk and bumper 20 tiny hand prints will appear. There will also be one big hand print on the side of the cars. Legend says it’s most likely to be the bus driver helping the children push the cars to safety. You won’t know if it’s true until you go to San Antonio, Texas, to the haunted railroad for yourself.
