Downtown Melbourne Train Bridge

You are here Home  > Bridges >  Downtown Melbourne Train Bridge

The old train tracks bridge was constructed in during the expansion of the Florida East Coast Railway to West Palm Beach in 1894 by Florida East Coast Industries (FECI).

Dating back to the 1920s, many women had perished from trains along this bridge, the most recent cases being three teenage girls perishing in 2010, and two in 1992.

In both cases, witnesses who survived said the girls seemed to not hear or see the trains coming. Locals say negativity radiates from the bridge, and people avoid going near the tracks other then to walk under. They also say orbs are seen commonly along the bridge, and when walking under, many say they feel like they’re being watched. (Submitted by Cayce C.)

  1. I’ve lived in Melbourne my entire life. I’ve never experienced anything here other than the park below is a good place to watch manatees in the day time, a street over is a good place to party. Though some of the buildings in downtown have their stories, this one I don’t believe. I’ve been around for most of the recent deaths on this track, it just serves as a reminder don’t walk on a bridge that doesn’t have a walkway to provide safe travels.

  2. There were 2 girls and one boy, the boy avoided the train and jumped off the tracks. I knew them personally and trust me theres no hauntings going on there.

  3. me and my friends went there to see if was haunted and its is bc we saw to shadows on the train one falling in the water and one hiding under the train tracks

  4. Has anyone heard of the “Diggings”? Its at the very end of Malabar rd. Its an Indian buriel ground. The indians are called the “Aies or A’s. Sorry, not sure how to spell the correct name of them. I lived out there for 11 years. It was a great place to live and so peaceful. The old house we lived in had the bones from some of the indians. I also heard that some of the bones from the indians went to the Smithsonian Inst. Im just wondering if anyone ever heard if the place was haunted. After we moved it was turned into a park. I believe its opened to the public. Please text any info to 321-872-4753. Thank you so much.
