a little boy was hit by a train right under the bridge. it's on the back roads of Royalton and Middletown and is said that if you go back there and tap 3 times on the bridge you can hear 3 loud taps back. BE ADVISED THAT THE FARMERS THAT LIVE THERE WILL CHASE YOU OUT. I WAS CHASED OUT WITH A SHOTGUN. BE CAREFUL.

I have personally been to this bridge at night. But I heard a story of three boys in a school bus running off the bridge and getting hit by a train. When I went, the bride goes off into a circle, kind of like a cauldasac and we did three circles in it then parked the car on the bridge. There was three people, including me and at the count of three we knocked on the bridge three times. As soon as it stopped ringing, a train came out of nowhere, there were no sounds leading up to it right untill we got done knocking and I was told those tracks don't work but when I went to go look at the train that came right out of nowhere, it was a little cart. It didn't look like it had an engine and it looked like something really old. I could hear it leaving in the distance but it really is a haunting. My friend did it once before but when upon getting back into the car, there was a handprint on the window. There's a crazy old farmer who comes out and tries to get your license plate but he hasn't done anything yet. -Erin.

I've been here a bunch of times. Nothing has ever happened, ever. Not even a crazy farmer coming out.

Me and my 3 friends went to Devils Bridge back in.. I believe at the end of 2007. We went to the bridge and arrived there at 3am.. did the 3 circles and the 3knock thing on the bridge. We left because after waiting about 5-10mins of nothing happening we were bored and disappointed. Going back down the road from which we came, the passenger nd I both got a feeling to give it one more shot just for shits and giggles..we thought. We did the 3circles again and as we finished the 3rd circle the whole entire cauldasac, cornfields, bridge and everything was lit up. My friend on the passenger side said "What the f**k is that!?" & we all looked over nd I slowly pulled my car up onto the bridge nd a litle past the bridge wall on the left side and we saw a HUGE train. There was absolutely no sounds of a train or of anything else. And of course my car was full of nothing buut silence which means outside noises would of been clear.. plus my window was down. If you have ever seen the movie The Polar Express.. The train that comes to pick the little boy up is what the train at Devils Bridge looked like. I swear to it. My car shut off and wouldnt start back up at first which caused us all to panic and scream.. buut after the 3rd try to start it.. it started.. guess 3rd time really is a charm. And I know it was not a car issue because I had juss gotten a brand new 2008 mazda nd had it for a week.. so we couldnt really determine what caused my car to shut off & have trouble starting back up. Well this is my story.. believe it or not..  people lie about so much these days ya never know whats fact and whats fiction. Buut my story is true. Thanks for reading! =)

I just visited the old cemetary in Middletown twice tonight (one without a camera and one with my camera) and both times we heard a train cross over the devil's bridge. My friends (4 of us total) didn't attempt to walk around the wall because it was broken down. But while we were there we got amazing pictures of orbs all over the place. We talked to the spirits to make them feel comfortable with us and got a response. The second time we went back that night I wanted to go with my camera (we used my friend's camera the first time around) so I could get pictures. We caught MANY orbs (no dust, real orbs) on my friend's camera (I will post pictures soon) and the more we talked to the spirits the more orbs showed up in the pictures. Myself and 1 of my friends saw a ghostly white misty apparition as well of what looked like a younger teenage boy. Maybe this was the 'jacob" that the PP was talking about...I dunno... No sooner did I try to pull over we heard a loud train roaring by over the bridge (which is right around the corner from the cemetary)...never heard it coming, the noises of the train moving of the bridge just stopped. My car them began bucking and felt like it was going to stall. Needless to say we didn't stay around. The first time when we were out at the cemetary wall my friend heard a train but I didn't realize what it was and thought it was just one of the cars that drove by realizing later that the sound of the train the first time came about 10 minutes after the car passed us. We are going back during the day and will be going with an EVP to see if we can catch any strange voices. We were literally freaked out so much to the point that I was doing like 60 down a road that I should have been doing only 25....it was nuts but a VERY real experience because we all experienced it. OH! Another of my friends that was with me also heard elderly women chatting shortly after the sound of the train stopped as well. Just absolutely amazing...LOVED it there!

Place is creepy been down there a few times and have heard numerous things went down there the other day with 2 other ppl, We noticed we were't alone there was a ford like explorer that had actually kept following us we parked along the side it went by real slow then came back again then it sat there adn waited by the bridge so we ended up leaving shortly after that then it followed us but not very far, me and my friends did catch numerous orbs on the camera and I went down there before that and all of a sudden got real sick almost like I was hit by something and I was fine before ended up getting sick with a fever so I don't know what was down there that night,

Is this the bridge beside the old cemetery near Zion road, or the one on Burd street in Royalton? If its the one near the cemetery...then how are you supposed to knock on it...its stone, and a small iron fence. When me and a few friends were at the one in the main Royalton area, we were sitting one a ledge underneath the bridge and all the sudden a train came roaring from nowhere, we didn't see the lights coming, engine or anything. so now im confused...

The one I went to is in Royalton. I don't know about any other one...is there another bridge on Zion road?? The iron  bridge we saw didn't have a cauldasac or anything and we didn't go down there (creeped me out too much). But the same thing happened to my friends and I with the train...out of no where a train came barreling down and it literally scared the snitz out of us! No lights, no horns blowing, nothing....EEK!

This cemetery is located on Locust Grove Road. Take 441 by TMI and turn onto Geyers Church Road, then right onto Hillsdale Road, and Locust Grove Road will be on the left. Cemetery is not far from the turn on the left hand side before the little stream

there is a bigfoot in the woods behind the field. Went to go do that dumb ass bridge knocking and we started swearing to provoke the knocking to commense. We heard snapping in the trees and a big mass , screaming that reverbed through us. Couldn't move and the smell so overwhelming. Started vomitting in our mouths. Went to turn to run to the car and it was right infront of us. 7 ft tall in the tree line. Menacing and hunched. It sloped back down the bank to underneath the bridge. When we went to leave theres also a cemetary on the way out towards the stop sign with the underpass. We saw 3 fast beaming blue balls of light. Wouldn't call them orbs. Didnt have basic characteristics and it was too fast. I dont know what to say. I just know it was a squatch.

I live right up the street from this bridge and have never heard this story before. lf you walk down the train tracks from this so called "devil's bridge" towards elizabethtown (left down the tracks if your crossing devils bridge into the culdisac).if you walk down the tracks There is a very old bridge allowing the tracks to cross the creek. its about a 10 minute walk and it has some half-assed metal railing, you cant miss it. a little bit down the bridge on the left side there is a square walk way that goes like 3 feet over the edge of the bridge. the story is that some women jumped off the bridge to her death. if you go under the bridge to the creek, there is a giant stone pillar right next to the bridge. you walk under the bridge and around to the other side of the pillar and look up at the bridge where the women jumped. i went there with 3 other people at about 130in the morning. we looked up at the spot where the women jumped while standing next to the pillar and he decided to cross the water to where it looked like she landed. as we were walked about 20yarsds up the creek from the pillar trying to find some rocks to jump across, out of no where with no sound a single train car, going very very slow (didnt even look like the normal passenger trains I see on those tracks everyday). shortly after the train passed by we saw a body shaped figure standing at the top of the bridge and we kept hearing very indistinct distant voices for about a minute while the shadowy figure walked around a little and then out of sight from the edge. crazy shit. it was like a locomotive looking kinda engine with no cars. it was right on the bridge and it was decently loud enough that I don't understand why we didn't hear it rolling up we actually saw the bright lights going 180 degrees across the front. my first thoughts were maybe that it was one of those cars that like makes sure there's no trees across the tracks??

Hey people. I went to devils bridge and the graveyard two nights ago. Everyone i was with heard and saw everything i'm about to share with you. On the drive there we all got lost at first but ended up on a road that leaded straight to the bridge which we thought was mere coincidence but we now know we were meant to be there that night. We went and parked alittle bit awag from the bridge and me and my friends got out of the car and walked onto the bridge it was pretty late and its the middle of winter so it was really dark. Me and my friends were just taking pictures at first but then we decided to call out the child spirit. My male friend who ill refer to as (R) was the first person to sit on the bridge and try and make contact. Before hand another friend (J) knocked previously and we had recieved a knock back after i made an offering of the change i had in my pocket. (R) made contact and everything around us began to get cold. Our breath even began to come out as clouds. We then began to experience some some crazy things like.we.saw white figures on the tracks and saw a train when the tracks don't run anymore. Then we went over to the cemetary and walked around the wall three times and then stood on it. All but me and my friend (D) were still on the wall because everyone else got bored and i started to feel as tho i was being nudged at first it was really light but it became more forceful i knew it wasnt the wind. It got to the point where it was so forceful i had to lean back to keep from falling but got pushed off with such force that i was lainched off the wall about 4 feet and landed on the ground on all fours with feet prints and hand prints left in the dirt by how hard i hit the ground. Believe or don't its up to you.
