I have heard stories of train wrecks in Terra Alta that have killed railroad workers. Well one evening I and my friends were driving across the tracks near Washington Ave, when we were in the middle of the tracks we saw this bright train light within feet of our vehicle, the lights on the crossing were not flashing and the crossing arms were still up. We screamed and hurried across the tracks into an empty parking lot and looked at the tracks and there was nothing there. We call this out “ghost train”. Our families and the rest of our friends think we are crazy, but we know what we saw.
