“I work as a backup janitor when the normal one isn’t available, I’ve seen some very weird things at the places I’ve cleaned. There are the usual needles and cans, not that shocking after a while, but the weirdest thing I have ever seen was when I was called out to a train yard to clean out some disused engines.
These things hadn’t been used since the mid-’90s and were going to be sold for scrap as they were too battered to be refurbished. I was warned beforehand that there might be a bum in one of them, but I brushed off since I had seen many bums at the various places I cleaned, they usually just ran off when they saw me coming.
So I picked up my bucket and got in the company truck to go out to the disused part of the yard where the trains were. Routine janitorial duties. As I am driving out there, I notice that I left the keys to the trains back at the office, oh well I figure, these things are so old that the door might not even be there anymore. So I drive out to the engines and park my truck and get out, nothing is creepy at this point, just some rotting diesel engines. I had seen much more creepy things before.
I walk up the railing and kick in the door with little force, it didn’t even have a lock anymore, I walk in and I immediately notice something very odd, it is in near-mint condition. Great I think, one less room to clean, but then I notice something very disturbing. A skeleton perched against a wall. Then I notice that it’s wearing a leather jacket and clutching a pill bottle in its bony hands. It was suicide. I walk a bit closer and grab the pill bottle from its hand, the prescription date was 10/9/96. This guy had been rotting in a train for years and nobody noticed his absence.
I pressed the button on my radio and told the guard to call the cops, there’s a dead guy in here and he’s been here for a decade. About five minutes later a cop car pulls up and an off-duty cop steps out and walks up to the train, turns out that this man had been missing since 1997 and nobody cared enough to look for him. He was an elderly man who lost his wife and offed himself in a train, he laid there for years and was never disturbed. When they buried him a few days later I was the only one to come, all of his family was dead or didn’t care enough to come, sad and creepy!"
