Ghost lights and a phantom are said to have been seen numerous times near the railroad tracks in Woodridge, Manitoba, Canada.
Since the 1930s, both ghost lights and a phantom holding an old gas lantern have been seen. The latter is believed to be the ghost of a hobo that may have died while riding the rails.
When seen, the ghost light is reported to appear only faintly, but as it gets closer it gets steadily stronger and even goes through colour changes before becoming blindingly brilliant.
Meanwhile, like something out of UFO lore, the ghost carrying the lantern may cause your car to temporarily stall. The ghost may also chase after you. Some people claim that the lights often appear in conjunction with the sound of an approaching train.
