On a cloudy summer night around 2 am you can hear the train whistle of an old locomotive as it passes Garden City on it's way to Clinton. Once said the sound is the 'ghost train' which as the story was told to me happened in the late 1880s as the locomotive was passing through town failed to sound the whistle because the engineer feel asleep.
As the locomotive passed the area where the city park is now it struck and killed two children that fell asleep on the tracks listening for the train with their ears to the rail. The engineer who's spirit is lost still travels the old rail line and blows the whistle when he passes Garden City in hopes to save the children he killed more than 100 years ago.
    There used to be a memorial near the tracks in the early 1940s, it was removed in hopes the 'ghost train' would not return. Around 2002 the red caboose was relocated from John Cole's property to the city park as a memorial although very few know the story.

Comment by JT Spencer: Made a comment about a year ago or so about hearing a train going through town on the old rail line and hearing the whistle even though trains haven't been through here in years. Since then I've been trying to remember approximately when that all stopped.
Now I remember it was when the old schoolhouse was torn down. Did not know the story of the train killing the two kids until this moment. That is a very sobering coincidence. As I know John Cole I'll be looking forward to relating my story with him.

Not really a ghost sitting per se however I have heard the ''train'' and the ''whistle'' of the train on numerous occasions. These all took place for many years however many years ago. I've lived here for 31 years and haven't heard the train for at least 5 years but! It was very loud and it was a train for sure that I heard.
