The Haunted Rails Ghost Train is returning this October 25th with Syfy Channel's Deep South Paranormal along for the ride.

As ghost hunting hit the mainstream with Ghost Hunters on Syfy Channel leading the way in TV reality shows, many teams have been able to showcase their own unique styles of investigating the paranormal. The latest show to take the coveted #1 Ghost Hunting reality TV show slot comes in the form of Deep South Paranormal on the Syfy Channel investigating unique historic locations like the Long Leaf Sawmill, Mount Helena Plantation House, Prat Cotton Grin Factory and more.

Syfy Channel describes the show as:

The quest for proof of the paranormal goes deeper than ever – Deep South that is. Deep South Paranormal follows a bayou-based team on a mission. Steeped in the rich history of their homeland, they want to unlock the mysteries that have baffled Southerners for years. They are a homegrown blend of self-proclaimed rednecks who share a passion for this part of the country and the paranormal events that take place there. They take on anything from swamp apparitions to haunted plantation houses and Southern voodoo legends.
