    Re: The Lantern Man
          One of the most famous US "spooklights" was the "Maco Light" at Maco, North Carolina, which seemed to run along the local railroad tracks.

         The common folk-belief was that the Light was a lantern carried by "Old Joe" the ghostly brakeman who been accidentally struck and decapitated by a locomotive decades earlier. Joe was continuallyy searching for his missing head. (Tho how he was supposed to SEE it, I dunno.)

           But here’s the strangest park – when the line was abandoned and the tracks torn up, in fairly recent years, the Light permanently disappeared!
