Have you ever driven down a dark road and come across a railroad crossing and as you approach the lights go off and the gates go down … yet nothing comes. I use to have it happen all the time. When grandma and I would go anywhere near areas like this lights would start flashing, bells would go off and sometimes, if there were safety gates, they would go down. All those times were on lonely flat roads, either at dusk or at night and all times there was not a train in sight. I wonder why these things happen, and why people want to put silly speculations on things which can’t really be explained.
