The Ghost Train

by Paul T. Johnson


About the Story

This game begins on Christmas Eve, 1935, on a train trip home from London to Torquay with your best friend Ingrid. Tragically, the train crashes! and you are the sole survivor or are you? When you seek help by telephone, you hear Ingrid's voice begging you to help her! Eerier still, you soon discover a secret railway track, an abandoned train station, and a one-way ghost train to St Gorgon's Cemetery.
