A railway man was coming home along the railway line after dark. As he was passing the railway bridge he saw a light coming behind him. He thought it was a man and when he stopped to watch, the light flashed by. It was a hand carrying a light. Some said it was only a shadow of a lamp on a car,but it was not. This happened in 1980.
