A river named Styx runs through Rittman, Ohio. In the spring of 1899, a train engineer named Alex Logan died in a derailment while passing over that river with the significant name.
Rumors of the site being haunted grew so powerful that the people of Rittman refused to join Dr. Faber in an investigation of his impossible vision: he had witnessed a phantom reenactment of that train disaster.
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
