Where the Armstrong Road meets the train tracks in Columbus, Mississippi, there is a story about a young woman who committed suicide. Supposedly, her husband died by accident due to a train on his way home from the war. Grieving over her lost, she stood in front of an oncoming train and died.
They say if you stop your car on the tracks and honk your horn, you can see a light in the distance. It's allegedly a lantern being used by the spirit of the woman looking for her husband. However, there are some reasonable explanations for the presence of the light. It could be a streetlamp partially obscurred by trees or the headlights of a car crossing over further down the tracks.
Either way, I don't recommend attempting to test this for safety purposes.
