'Ghost Tracks' Mysteriously Appear in Cape May County after Nor'easter

Last Edited:

The recent nor' easters that have swept through the area are helping to dig up pieces of buried history here in South Jersey.

Back-to-back winter storms have helped uncover another piece of the famous "ghost tracks" at Higbee Beach in Cape May County.

The last time a section of the tracks was uncovered was over the summer, and officials say this new segment seems to be more intact and level than the last one.

The "ghost tracks" are all that remains of a rail line that once served as a support for sand mining and munitions testing facilities during World War I.

The tracks are currently only visible at low tide.
