There is an urban myth about the ghosts of 36? 63? school students killed at a railroad crossing near Mission Espada in South San Antonio when their bus stalled on the tracks and was hit broadside by an oncoming train. This actually happened to me one foggy night after a friend told me the story and accompanied me to the site. Sure enough, my Ford LTD stalled just as we reached the tracks and the next morning started right up when we came to retrieve my car.

I believe that it has been shown that there never was such an accident in San Antonio. I think it happened in Utah. The myth is that if you drive a vehicle up to the tracks and then turn the motor off, it will be "pushed" across the tracks, supposedly by the spirits of the children.

It has been shown that the tracks are at the top of a hill, so actually it is gravity that will cause your car to move. :weeee:
