Temecula Cemetery ... I was out one night with a friend and decided to go to the cemetery at 2:00 am. I was drinking with a friend and decided to visit my sister that's buried there. So I got there and I couldn't find my sister's grave since it's been over 7 years since I'd been there. I started wondering, taking pictures because I was feeling someone was watching me. I had that back feeling chills down my spine so I went next to a big monument and told my friend to snap some pictures. And sure enough there was a ghostly figure in the back of my shoulder. I didn't notice the ghost till the next day when I was zooming in on my pictures....
Seems to be an old man smiling with a grin, bow tie with black suit!!. - Ghost picture submitted by Oscar

My family moved here to Temecula in 2004, we live in Verano of Margarita. My husband and I never thought of Temecula as being haunted, we were passing by here from SD and adored this beautiful town so we moved here. One night, shortly after moving here we had just turned off the TV and had settled down to sleep when we heard it, the train. I clearly heard the train whistle, and the chugging sound, I said to my husband ''I didn't know there was a train close by''. He didn't either. The next day I googled it, and found out the following. On August 21, 1882 the first train departed National City Stops would include Temecula, Perris, Lake Elsinore, and finally Colton, where it would eventually meet the line coming from the East. Surveyors were warned by local residents that rainstorms would swell the Santa Margarita creek in Temecula, and potentially wash away the tracks, engineers ignored their warnings. The winter of 1883-1884 was one of the wettest, resulting in a total washout of the tracks through the Temecula canyon, it was rebuilt but it took a year. Frequent washouts and another storm in 1891 Closed the train down by 1935. We have heard it two more times, the last time was about two months ago. - Ghost picture submitted by Hearing things in Temecula

Comment by Anonymous:
I live on the southern outskirts of Escondido California and I sometimes hear train whistles late at night. Escondido has the sprinter but it does not run late at night and the whistles sound like they are either closer than where the sprinter tracks are or they are louder than the sprinter's whistles.
I also remember hearing those whistles before the sprinter even commenced operations. I saw Escondido listed on that schedule so I think that the reason for my experience might be related to yours in Temecula.
