Louisiana railroads "haunted"?
(These items are from a list of "Haunted Places in Louisiana," by Landon Howell, posted on the juiceenewsdaily.com website Oct. 29, 2004)
Bossier - KCS Railroad Tracks - Near a curve in the railroad tracks inside the city limits of Bossier City, ghostly cries and screams can be heard. The story is a young mother and several of her small children were hit by a train years ago when her vehicle stalled on the tracks. The spine tingling cries can be heard between 10:30 and 11:30pm on certain nights. Even hard core railroad men avoid this area at night. My husband won't go near the area at night again, because he has experienced the fright several times while working.

Lake Charles - Old Railroad - This is an old road that is on the outskirts of town. A railroad runs across the road, leading to the rice factories. The story is that a long time ago, in the 1950s, before there were railroad signs there, a family consisting of a mother, father, and two daughters went down that road. Despite the fact of the older girl protesting going down that road due to a bad feeling, the father drove down there anyways and the car got hit by an oncoming train. Reports of seeing orbs and the apparition of the older girl. When you drive down that road, you get a very strong, odd feeling of being suffocated.

Rayville - Holly Ridge railroad tracks - A long time ago there was the conductor of the train and him and one of his workers got into a fight and the worker decapitated the conductors head and now the conductor comes back every night in a red orb so you go to the rail road tracks and turn off your car and roll down your window and wait for it to come when you see it start your car before it gets to you or the conductor will take your soul.
