I grew up and went to school in Richmond, VA graduating in 1964. Most everyone in school had heard about the West Point Boogie Lights as we called them. One night a few of us got together and went to West Point to check it out.
After sitting quietly for a while the light appeared and moved up and down the tracks. At that time (prior 1964) there would be quite a few cars present and only when things were quiet would the light appear, like a lantern moving back and forth on the tracks.
It was also told that someone had hanged themselves from a tree near where the cars would park and there was a rope hanging there but I never heard the story about that, nor saw anything unusual concerning it.|
People have contributed the Boogie Light to swamp gas gathered on the tracks but if you have seen it you would say it was not anything gaseous but a direct light, like from a lantern.

It was in the summer I believe of 1967. I lived in a very rural area of the state known as the Northern Neck. The county seat had a population of maybe 1000 people. There was not much there to entertain a 17 year old and his girlfriend.
