THE GHOSTS OF THE CIRCUS TRAIN
A LONG TIME AGO THERE WAS A CIRCUS TRAIN THAT WAS
TRAVELING TO ITS NEXT SHOWPLACE.
THE TRAIN SOMEHOW DERAILED. ALL OF THE CIRCUS WORKERS
AND ANIMALS WERE KILLED. THEY WERE BURIED IN A NEARBY
CEMETERY. IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT IF YOU GO THERE LATE
AT NIGHT, YOU CAN SEE THE CIRCUS PEOPLE AND ANIMALS
WANDERING AROUND. OR, MANY PEOPLE HAVE HEARD THE
SOUNDS OF A TRAIN AND ANIMALS SUCH AS ELEPHANTS.
