First produced in 1925 and filmed no less than three times, The Ghost Train was a long running success in London and on Broadway. In Maine, near the Canadian border, there’s a legend of a phantom locomotive sweeping through a peaceful village, leaving death in its wake. Despite a psychic station master’s weird stories of a ghost train, the six stranded passengers decide to say the night. They soon regret the decision as ghostly and not so ghostly apparitions materialize and the ghost train comes barreling down the line.
