|Some rail cars during the early 20th century were still being made of wood which spelled disaster for many victims of railway fires such as the one near Charles City, Iowa in 1920|
There is hill at the location of the old 1920 train disaster known as Iron Hill near what is known as the old White farm. Hikers and other visitors to the site have reported hearing the cries of children in the area. Some even claim they can get a whiff of the faint smell of burnt wood and smoke.

There have been a rare few eye witnesses however, who have claimed to have actually seen the ghostly image of a little girl in a white dress merrily wandering through the woods of Iron Hill.
On one occasion, a visitor interested in the site was investigating the area searching for any evidence of the carnage that had taken place there long ago, looking for some answers when they discovered the remains of a burnt baby doll half buried near the tracks. Perhaps this is the link that keeps this restless soul halfway bewteen this world and the next.
