The Bama Boys from Syfy Channel's Deep South Paranormal came up to Utica to show everyone how they ..."Do it Southern Style."

Just in time for Halloween, the Bama Boys Johnathan Hodges and Benny Reed boarded the Haunted Rails Ghost Train bound for Remsen to lead investigations of Capel Cerrig and the Hoovertown Fields of the Remsen Depot.

The night began with the Bama Boys meeting and talking with attendees at Union Station before boarding the train.

The Train

The Adirondack Scenic Railroad decorated the trains for the occasion and with Halloween music blasting and many in costume, it helped set the mood for the excursion.

Once the train was underway, Jonathan Hodges and Benny Reed, the Bama Boys shared a few thoughts on ghost hunting. When asked what they thought of someone who was interested in ghost hunting for the first time, their response was quite startling.

"Eat your vitamins, stay in school. Don't be a ghost hunter. It's no fun. You poop in your pants and spend lots of money on underwear and you can't get 'em clothes dried 99% of the time. Don't Do it." ...Jonathan Hodges

After a few more jokes our Bama Boys talked about what an actual investigator needs and the best way to approach investigating in general.


Investigators On Their Way To Capel Cerrig

Ghost hunters from the Haunted Rails had the opportunity to investigate two historic haunted sites in Remsen, Capel Cerrig also known as the Remsen Stone Meeting House and The Remsen Depot, the Hoovertown Fields.

Throughout the night as Benny Reed and Jonathan Hodges led investigations of the sites many experienced the paranormal phenomena and haunted history of the sites first-hand. Ghostly footsteps were heard on the balcony while Benny led an EVP session at Capel Cerrig while those outside witnesses fleeting shadows. Those exploring the Depot witnessed large spikes in energy before a loud bang was heard on an outbuilding.

As the night wound down the Bama Boys walked the train thanking particpants for coming and checking in to see how everyone liked it ... "southern style..."
