Supernatural phenomena[edit]

Munger Road is known as a legendary haunted site, drawing visitors to experience supernatural phenomena at the railroad tracks. According to the legend, a school bus full of children was hit by a train after becoming stuck on the tracks, killing everyone inside. Reportedly, if visitors at Munger Road sprinkle baby powder on their car bumpers and sit on the tracks with their car in neutral, the spirits of the children push the car off the tracks to safety, and their handprints can be seen in the powder.[2]
