Benevolent Ghost Children Can Go Back to Saving Lives

If you're looking to scare your kids (or yourself) this Halloween, taking them to the Ghost tracks should be on your list. 

Last month Union Pacific Railroad had originally planned to cut off public access to the ghost tracks to begin a construction project on an additional track to allow for trains to pass each other in opposite directions. But the project has been postponed, according to the City of San Antonio press release.

No further details have been given as to why the project is delayed, but we are happy to see that the children will be able to go back to their daily routine and put their idle ghost hands to work by pushing cars over the tracks to insure other people aren't given the same destiny in which they are crushed by an oncoming train. 

Legend says, the ghosts of the children help people by pushing their vehicles over the tracks. Before entering these spooky tracks, you have to dust a little baby powder or flour on the back of your car so you can be sure they gave you a helping hand. Of course we know that ghost kids don't really have the strength to do anything when they are on the other side, but keeping the story alive is what really matters.
