Urban Legend

1. The Ghost Tracks

Step aside Donkey Lady and Dancing Devil of El Camaroncito. San Antonio's favorite urban legend is still the Ghost Tracks on the city's South Side near Mission Espada. If you believe a train killed a school bus filled with children back in the late 1930s and now ghost kids haunt the area and push vehicles out of harm's way, don't let us tell you otherwise. We just implore you not to YouTube the phenomenon and watch the logical explanations offered by TV shows like Miracle Hunters and Is it Real? that use science and technology to suck all the fun out of the folklore.
