The Reputed Phenomena: People report hearing the sound of a phantom train whistle in an area where the railroad has not been in decades.
The Investigation: The original Peck Station has been converted into a private home. In the backyard sits an original Northern Pacific Railway
caboose. The railroad tracks are long gone, and the trains have not passed through this region in many decades. We were unable to find anyone who could provide a firsthand account of having heard the phantom train.
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! Be aware that the former Peck Station is
private property and under constant surveillance. TRESPASSING IS A CRIME! UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS FOUND ON THIS PROPERTY WILL BE SUBJECT TO ARREST AND PROSECUTION!
