a new haunted attraction in New Albany, Indiana
Rails to Death Opens in New Albany
In the 1940s, a train traveling from New York City to Los Angeles was mysteriously derailed in New Albany on Halloween during the November full moon. What caused the tragic event is still unknown. What is known, however, is that the entire crew and passengers were all killed in the wreck, as were dozens of local citizens who had been drawn to the scene by the screech of iron and the screams of the dying.
Brave people aged twelve and above are welcome to explore the grisly spot this year on Friday and Saturday, November 29 and 30, from noon to 8 p.m.
In addition to human carnage, several animals were slaughtered, including domesticated animals in the fields surrounding the crash, and animals on board, accompanying a troupe of clowns, who also perished.
The train was carrying barrels of toxic waste, which were strewn at the derailment, spilling contents so evil that even today, hideous plants grow at the site and curiosity-seekers have been deformed by merely inhaling the putrid decades-old atmosphere.
Rumors abound of a mass murderer who may have been onboard and survived the sinister mistake, only to become even more demented and thirsty for the blood of innocents. Some say he uses chain saws for his dastardly deeds. Other reports indicate his victims die cannibalized and remain in New Albany in the form of zombies, but these stories have not yet been substantiated.
A tour of the dreadful locale – 1005 Old Hick Road, Floyds Knobs, IN 12345 – is available at a price of $15 each. An extra fee will be charged for the rare opportunity to spend time in a coffin and other frightening activities. For more information, please visit www.railsofdeath.com
