away--never in the same position.
Let me emphasize: if all was quiet the light would remain illuminated. If someone spoke the light would fade or extinguish. I am 62 now but it's something I will always remember.

I had grown up in nearby Williamsburg and frequently heard stories about the famed West Point ghost light. I was always a little skeptical. While on summer break during college (1971) some friends and I decided we would check it out for ourselves.
We went to the railroad crossing after midnight. Some other kids from Richmond were already there and said they had not seen anything. Within about 15 minutes we spotted a very faint light far down the tracks which I thought could be a car headlight.|
The light would blink on for a few seconds and go out only to reappear about 45 seconds later. Each time it got closer. No sound at all. Finally it got to within 300 feet of where we were standing.|
It was like a bright welding arc light lighting up our shirts and lasting for only a few seconds. It was very weird. Two friends and I decided we would walk towards the light. As we approached it went out and didn't reappear.
I must say that when we reached the spot on the tracks where we had last seen it we got creeped out wondering if it might suddenly come on right in front of us. It didn't. However as we continued to walk down the tracks it again reappeared some 300 feet behind us and literally followed us down the tracks.
