The train yard is haunted by the ghost of a hobo that was killed by a train. He was helping another hobo who had gotten his clothing stuck in something on the rail. He got his friend out but was hit himself and died.|
He can be seen wandering the train yard in broad daylight. When approached he vanishes. From a distance you can't tell he's a ghost only when you get close to him and he disappears. That's when you know you have just seen the hobo ghost.

I grew up in a house at 138th and Stewart Ave in Riverdale IL. That house was very haunted with something. So many weird unexplainable things happened in that house.

Comment by Mike: Hay, is this the house like the 3rd house from the end of the block? This is a house that's been boarded up for years. I always got eerie feelings about that house and the old grain tower across the field from Stewart that is supposed to be haunted too. I'll be posting a story about that place, lots of sinister stories about that place, but I'm almost certain that's the house you lived in..
Comment by Elaine: I grew up on Stewart as well. Close to 143rd. Weird things used to happen at my place too.
