It is said that if you look up at the tracks (bridge) at night you can see a mysterious outline of a person and a dim light like a lantern running on the tracks. People around here say that its Kate forever reliving the incident that saved a train and lots of people. September 2004 CORRECTION: located west of the City of Boone is not the bridge where Kate Shelley saved the passenger train. It was actually first structured in early 1900s and was named The Boone Viaduct. It was renamed for Kate Shelley in the 1960s. The bridge has wonderful tales of Specter Steam Engines and ghostly watchmen that walk it. The original bridge that Kate Shelley crossed was demolished in the 1930s. Kate Shelleys ghost accordingly haunts the hamlet of Moingona Iowa South West of City of Boone
