The tracks are behind the old gin in Mercer. The story is that a little boy named Toby was out walking on the tracks going to the station to wait on his dad to get home because his dad drove the train. Toby got his foot caught in the tracks and couldn't get it out. The train was getting closer, and Toby didn't get off the tracks in time and got decapitated on the tracks. If you go out there after dark, you can still see the lantern that Toby is holding
while searching for his head.|
