STATESVILLE, N.C. — Authorities say a man who was waiting with several friends for a "ghost train" from a North Carolina legend was killed when
a real train came down the tracks.
So this is a very short article and I didn't want to post anymore on here for fear of plagiarism.
It is a terrible tragedy of course, but I have to question the common sense of the people involved, and in particular their inability to clear the
tracks in time when a real train came around the bend. Surely of all things they should have been more expectant of a real train than the ghost
Although not particularly interested in paranormal activity and ghosts, I do get the fascination with such an occurrence, and if anything else I would
have joined the group at the tracks to debunk the legend.
My own personal experience amounts to the local carnival which is usually a massive fluorescent disappointment.
Yeah, saw the story the other day. It's sad for the family involved to be sure, but they were waiting for the ghost train on a tresle(spelling?) or
bridge like the scene from the movie "Stand By Me". Not the best place to watch for it in my opinion.
I saw this this morning. They also said he saved his gf before he died. I guess he kissed her and said "I love you" and pushed her out of the way.
She, last I heard was in critical condition. His last act in life was saving another. It's sad what happened and I feel for the families but it
really isn't smart to ever play on or near rail road tracks.
