what seemed like an eternity of sprinting, rolled the windows up, and locked the doors. Finally the car started moving, and we got out of there as soon as we could. We pulled over in a parking lot to try to piece it all together -- the train and lights, them stopping, the man appearing. None of it made sense. None of us felt uncomfortable, all of us being firm believers in paranormal activity. We were just not expecting anything so intense to happen that night when we left for our adventures. We had planned to go to five or six places that night. That being our first stop, needless to say, we did not go anywhere else.

I was visiting a friend in Richmond when he began telling me about a phenomenon he called ''the West Point Light''. I challenged him to take me there at once, so I could be sure that nothing could be set up. It took over an hour, since West Point is over fifty miles from Richmond. We ate dinner in town, and then at dusk we drove out to the tracks which he said were only used during the day to move items related to the wood or paper industry. It was an old road that dipped low to meet the tracks. We finally arrived on the rail bed and actually parked the car in the middle.
It only took fifteen minutes when one of us first noted the light. It seemed to come out of a mist, about three to four feet from the track bed, about 100-150 feet up the track. The light seemed to have a bluish tint (like a mercury vapor lamp) and rose in intensity and moved slightly. The light was bright enough to reflect off the rails. There was heat lightning in the distance, which served to light up the area briefly so I could definitely verify there were no people holding the light on the tracks. The light kept moving as we walked toward it, and then it actually switched sides and appeared on the opposite side of the parked automobile.
