Great story teller
In the early 2000’s, myself and some family members decided to drive down to see if the story of the chapel hill ghost light was true since we only lived about 25 minutes away. It was late in the fall and about 9 at night, we pulled off in a corn field just outside chapel hill. Walking down the tracks for about an hour we decided to turn around. We had to get off the track earlier because a train was coming. On the way back to our car I looked off in the distance and seen a light in what I assumed was another train. I panicked and yelled out to my family to get off the tracks, to my astonishment it wasn’t a train but a light that looked like it was floating side to side. I was speechless because skeptical of the light. Till this day I’m not sure what we seen but it was unexplainable
