The story goes that a woman had a husband that was a night conductor for the Summerville railroad company. Every night around midnight you could see her, waiting by the tracks with her husband?unch and a lantern.. waiting for him to stop and eat. One night, he never showed up, and she was told that his train had derailed and he was beheaded in the accident. Although they buried his remains, she never accepted the fact that her husband was gone, and so she went to the tracks at midnight with her lantern and walked up and down, waiting for him. People of course began to think she was crazy, but she continued this nightly ritual until her own death. Mysteriously, the lights have never stopped coming though.
It is said that if you go to the tracks just before midnight, you can hear the normal sounds of the night, crickets chirping, frogs croaking, the breeze blowing, etc.??ut for some odd reason, and this has been the case for every person who has seen the light. at midnight, the sounds suddenly cease. As if a presence has quieted them momentarily. Then you can see it, usually its far off, a light and nothing else??ing your way. If you stick around for the light to get closer, it is said that the light will chase you.
