Many moons ago I was a hairdresser. A client of mine told me about how she always traveled this country road at night to go home from work. One night in the distance she kept seeing blinking lights where there were never any lights of the sort there. She got SO close by the time she realized the light was headlights of a car blinking between the cars of a passing train. She had to slam on breaks and skid to avoid smashing into the train. She said it was so dark and the blinking lights confused her. She said in her decades of travelling that road she'd NEVER seen a train go through there. It was a harrowing story. There weren't any crossing bars or anything there. I am not sure when it took place but it scared her to death.
