The ghost of Zoltán is rewarded for a good life by being allowed to drive the cog-wheel railway up and down the Buda hills at night. This had been Zoltán's life ambition, and he is very happy. However, the people living near the cog-wheel railway are worried why the railway is running when it should be closed down for the night. So they call the police, who try to set a trap for whoever is driving the railway. But the trap does not work, as the police cannot see the ghost of Zoltán driving the train. The local dogs and cats, who can see ghosts, welcome Zoltán and the night journeys of the cog-wheel railway.

Ghosts traditionally make their presence felt in many ways, from unexplained footfalls and chills to odours and apparitions. This fascinating volume takes a look at some of the strange and unexplained hauntings across the length and breadth of Britain’s railway network: signals and messages sent from empty boxes; trains that went into tunnels and never left; ghostly passengers and spectral crew; the wires whizzing to signal the arrival of trains on lines that have been closed for years… Based on hundreds of first-person and historical accounts, Shadows in the Steam is a unique collection of mysterious happenings, inexplicable events and spine-chilling tales, all related to the railways. Compiled by David Brandon and Alan Brooke, acknowledged experts on railways and the supernatural, and including sections on the London Underground and railway ghosts in literature and film, this book will delight lovers of railways and spooky stories alike.

A re-issue of Paul Yee and Harvey Chan’s classic picture book Ghost Train, published in celebration of Groundwood’s 35th anniversary. The enhanced epub version includes a read-aloud feature of the story narrated by Molly Johnson. The story of a young Chinese girl who arrives in North America only to discover that her father has died building the railway. This powerful, unforgettable and multi-award-winning tale is based on the lives of the Chinese who settled on the west coast of North America in the early 1900s. Left behind in China by her father, who has gone to North America to find work, Choon-yi has made her living by selling her paintings in the market. When her father writes one day and asks her to join him, she joyously sets off, only to discover that he has been killed. Choon-yi sees the railway and the giant train engines that her father died for, and she is filled with an urge to paint them. But her work disappoints her until a ghostly presence beckons her to board the train where she meets the ghosts of the men who died building the railway. She is able to give them peace by returning their bones to China where they were born. Ghostly, magical and yet redeeming, this tale is superbly illustrated by Harvey Chan.

The culmination of Brad Steiger’s 50 years of paranormal research, this book is a bold telling of true ghost stories and firstperson encounters with the supernatural. Arranged topically, it covers every sort of ghost and haunting: poltergeists, shadow beings, and phantoms alongside haunted apartments, hotels, and trains. From ghosts that still haunt Ohio’s State Reformatory, otherwise known as Shawshank, to Abe Lincoln’s regular consultation with mediums, this compendium delves into the true scary stories from both historical documents and personal accounts. In its 30 chapters, spirits represented include the good (“Ghosts that Saved Lives”), the bad (“Invisible Home Wreckers”), and the ugly (“Demonic Spirits That Whisper Commands to Kill”). The book goes on to unearth the ghastly goingson and macabre manifestations at haunted places such as museums, churches, graveyards, restaurants, and sacred sites while also instructing how to perform a cleansing ritual to rid a home of unwanted spectral visitors. This second edition is updated to include new stories and compelling evidence of both the existence of ghosts and proof of hauntings that will entertain, induce chills, and make the doubtful believe.

Twelve stories of the supernatural by Dennis Hamley collected into one edition. The world of ghosts is a varied one. The ghosts in these stories may seek justice for wrongs done to them in life, they may bring relief for injustice to people in the present. Some are malignant, some bring hope to the people of the present, some bring danger, others bring death. They may repay debts, they may right wrongs. There are prizefighting ghosts, musical ghosts, athletic ghosts, football ghosts, railway ghosts, Christmas ghosts, revenants from the past and one or two from the future. Ghost stories have been told for as long as there has been speech. They seem to satisfy deeply held instincts and needs. Each of these stories comes with an author's postscript, showing what triggered the writing process, what sort of ghost inhabits the story and where it may sit in the great pantheon of this mighty genre.
