Reference number for this case: 18-Oct-54-Rambourlieux. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In the Cambrai issue, the regional newspaper Nord-Matin for October 22, 1954, reported that "Monday" - therefore on October 18, 1954 - the passengers of the railway line from Busigny to Valenciennes who were on the train arriving at 6:28 p.m. at the Neuvilly station, had seen, at nightfall, on the heights of the Rambourlieux farm, a strange glow in the shape of a disc, first motionless, then moving slowly in the direction of Montay.

NEUVILLY

FLYING SAUCERS WERE SEEN

Our friendly music director saw a saucer heading towards Le Cateau.

Saturday at 9:15 p.m., a resident of rue de la Maladrerie who was in her yard, also saw in the sky a luminous ball which advanced very quickly. She called her husband immediately, but when he too came out, the thing was already gone.

Monday, users of the S.N.C.F. line Busigny-Valenciennes who were on the 6:28 p.m. train (arrival time at Neuvilly station), saw at dusk, on the heights of the Rambourlieux farm, a strange glow in the form of a disc, first motionless, then moving slowly in the direction of Montay.

Explanations:

On October 18, 1954 at 08:45 p.m., there was a widely seen meteor in this region.

But we are told of a train arriving at 6:28 p.m. in Neuvilly; this is too early.

This hour may be wrong, or another meteor is possible.
