Location: Near the trees and fields on a hill near the sea not far from beaches, harbours and castles on the Welsh coastline in the British Isles in the U.K. You know, that place next to Europe?.

Are you sitting comfortably? Like trains? Like old films? Well. This film may be for you. Enjoy!


(Caution. Horror film... )

Anyone watch it? Anyone seen it before? It was filmed on the old Great Western Railway in the days when it was operating. One thing though. The bridge would have been interlocked so the ending was a bit of.... Lets just say it would bend railway rules a bit as they would not be able to give the road with the signal if the bridge was open.

Would this film be classed as a horror film?

Looks like the line between Dawlish and Teignmouth. Must admit, I prefer the Will Hay version of the story "Oh! Mr Porter" and have also seen the play produced by a local dramatic group. Technically, there would be interlocking of bridge and signals, but it's only a story.
Presumably you know the original author is better known as Mr Godfrey in the sitcom Dad's Army.

The author of The Ghost Train?

Yes. I have been to the Dawlish area once and I witnessed a miracle there. :)

The play, on which this film and a few others are based, was written by Arnold Ridley.

I find it a scary film though. I think that because it is in black and white, it highlights the eerie scene.
