The Ghost Train 

It is a bleak night in November 1925 and the party of travellers have missed their connection with no prospect of a train till morning. There's no hotel nearby, no taxi, no choice but to stay in the waiting room.

They soon begin to regret this decision when the mysterious appearance of a glamorous lady and her sister, is quickly followed by ghostly and not so ghostly apparitions. Then the true reasons behind the night's events are suddenly revealed.

Written in seven days in 1925 Arnold Ridley’s (better known as Private Godfrey in Dads Army) “The Ghost Train” still retains its old fashioned fascination for today’s audiences. It has all the ingredients that were uppermost in the public’s mind just after the first world war with spies still the number one worry. Mix these with a remote railway station late at night and all sorts of things can be imagined.
