One story claimed the light emanated from the lantern of a headless railway worker decapitated along the tracks. Another legend centered on a phantom train that disappeared during the Civil War while carrying wounded soldiers. I put no stock in paranormal explanations, but the light was real nonetheless. I think a lot of things in life are like that—you have no ready scientific explanation. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t one.
The most interesting thing to me is how the light showed up at the same time each night and performed in the same way— as if something consistent was driving it. It remains a mystery to me.
