Regarding the story about the kids who push your car uphill on the west side on thuderbird. I lived in El Paso for 12 years, work for the railroad and am an avid railroad historian. This story of the kids in the bus getting hit by a train is 100% false! There never have been in all of El Paso's history railroad tracks running through that part of town.The southern Pacific, El Paso and southwestern railroad, and Santa Fe railroad all ran (the sp now the up still run) south of the west side of town. I have been to the spot on thunderbird where this ''supposed'' happened.Yes it is true that your car will roll up hill both forward and backward depending on the direction you're facing on the street. But, as I stated before, no railroad ever ran or has ever had tracks at that location! To the best of my knowledge this is a naturally occurring phenominon due to the way the street is graded.If one were to do some research they will be able to find similar stories of ''urban legend'' in other parts of the country stating the exact same thing! If I recall correctly there are places in Oregon that are noted for such things.One that comes to mind is a location in an old house where one can place a broom and it will appear to stand upright on it's own. This is due to the grading of the land and house that makes the broom appear to be held up when it is merely balanced due to the grades and gravity at play in the location.Some basic research looking for old maps of where railroad track have run in El Paso; most notably on the Westside where thunderbird Dr. Is will prove that no railroad ever ran there. I do remember while going to high school at Coronado there was a story that went around about seeing ghosts at the 3 way intersection at Champions place at the south west corner of the school.I never tried to verify this. But, I would imagine this too was more urban legend that got spread through the school over the 30 plus years of it's existance; since teachers I had who were once students there said they remembered hearing the same stories years before.One place I have seen, heard and had feelings about is El Paso High School. I have witnessed lights turning themselves on and off on the top floor in the middle of the night when no one is there. I also dated a girl who went to school there and they would do a lock in once a year.During the 4 lock ins she went to everyone had many ghostly experiences. One place in the building that is the weirdest and I had the most experiences in was the underground tunnels that rin through the school.When in band I would have acess to the tunnels. They were not a place that anyone liked to go but myself and a few others and we always heard and saw things in them. Most especially in the corridors leading to the back of the stage in the auditorium. .

Last night me and some friends went over to the far west side on Mesa and thunder bird. A guy from work had told us about the tracks and what happened there. A while back a school bus died on the tracks and got smashed by the train killing innocent children.Well a road and houses have been built around the area and the road covers the tracks now, but he told us that if you park your car on the street over the tracks then put it in neutral and then turn it off the spirits of the children will come out and push your car out of the way of the train.Well I did not believe any it. People make these sort of stories up right, well one thing you can do is put baby powder on the back of your car, why? You'll see. So there we were with the car turned off, our friends car in front of us turned off to, then the cars started moving down the road.I was thinking that we are on a hill like road going down on neutral, the car is going to move either way right? Well we got to the stop sign and started the cars. We went again then took off to the 7 eleven to wash off the powder from the cars.When I go out.... I saw tiny little kid sized hand prints everywhere. And these were not my hands or my friends hands, these were small and all over the place. The baby powder shows hand prints very well.I was shocked, most of the time that you have the baby powder on your car the hands will show so you can try this for your self, most people know of this so ask around and you'll most likely find the place, it's very weird.I felt bad for the kids, most times when you go you get a very sad feeling. Some people hear the kids running around or making noise. Make sure you cover the whole back of your car with the powder, not hard to get off after.Also if you think that the hand prints are probably yours, wash your car really good before, then compare your hand to the ones on the powder, they will not match. Remember just ask around for the haunted train tracks in the west side.Than KS for reading and good luck.
