Thanks goes to Jerry for sharing the paranormal
experience that he and his fiancé had while investigating the Clyde
Railroad Tracks in Sandusky County.
Jerry says his fiancé witnessed two shadow people while they were parked
on the tracks and he heard a call for help after a car on the other side
of the tracks mysteriously vanished.
This story pertains to the
already listed story of the railroad tracks past the golf course in
Clyde, OH. My fiancé and I read about the story and only living
approximately 15 minutes away, decided to check it out. So we headed
southbound on S. Main St. (101) through town on December 10, 2008 at
3:23 AM. It was rainy and cold but we wanted to check it out anyway. So
we approached the tracks careful to look down the road, forwards and
back, being as it is a highway we made sure there was no traffic. I
parked on the tracks with our van, turned off the lights and cut the
engine. Reading the story about this location, my fiancé and I were a
bit skeptical of the story, however the events that followed changed
that. As we sat there no car wreckage or severed heads appeared to us,
but we did have an experience.
My fiancé and I are what is
called a "sensitive." We are not psychic or talk to dead people, but we
get impressions, feelings, and sometimes thoughts of those who have
passed. We both began to have a heightened sensation of something was
nearby. We had what is similar to an adrenaline rush combined with
stomach butterflies. My fiancé suggested we go and I agreed. I turned on
the van and proceeded off the tracks. She informed me that she had seen
two shadowy figures glide along the track on the passenger's side of the
van. We pulled into a closed market down the road to turn around and
head back. When I came to the tracks, a train was already crossing the
road. This was kind of eerie. But was just as scary, we saw a car
approach the tracks from the opposite side while the train was crossing.
Keep in mind this is out in the country and there are no side streets
nor drives near the tracks. When the train passed the car had vanished!
Just as scary as that, when we crossed the tracks, I heard someone say,
"Help," in a very audible tone. I asked my fiancé if she heard that, and
tried to change the subject, and when I told her what I heard, she
agreed that she had heard it too.
Both very shaken by the
experience, we pulled into the Speedway gas station in Clyde and got
some gas. When she went inside to prepay, one last startling anomaly had
occurred. We don't open the back window in the van, especially when it's
winter time. I went to fill up the tank when I noticed that the
passenger side window was wide open. Paranormal or nit it was still
strange. The experience itself was a little frightening, particularly
the audible call for help we heard.
A must-see location for any
paranormal thrill seeker. A warning though, this is on a well-used
highway, please be cautious and aware of your surroundings. Not to
mention it is on train tracks that are in use. We missed the train by
only a couple of minutes. Had we had car problems, we might have met the
same fate. So be cautious! Happy hunting.
