  1. This was actually my good friend’s mom. The story is actually real. She tried jumping on the train in down town Fargo and was tagged to that position in Moorhead. It was late at night so no one noticed until a little before that intersection of 12th ave and 20th st.

  2. I used to live near the tracks and had dreams of the woman staring at me from the track with her glowing red eyes. I always thought it was just weird but now ik the description of her it’s crazy that I just found this out.
