Abstract:
The Maco Light is one of a number of unexplained and unsolved mysteries that have occurred in North Carolina over the years. Sixty years ago, at Maco, located fifteen miles west of Wilmington, a passenger train crashed into the rear of a freight train. The flagman aboard the freight frantically waved his lantern, but the engineer of the oncoming train did not stop. The flagman was killed, and ever since a bobbing light has been seen on the tracks at various times where the accident happened.
