Has any one here ever read Ghost Train! by Tony Reevy? Its a collection of railroad ghost stories and folk lore from all over the US. Its fun to read and worth buying if you ever have the oppritunity.

This thread caught my eye, since I wrote a dopey one page story to read to my kids at bed time, that I called "the ghost train."

So I got a copy of the book "Ghost Train," and have been reading the stories to the kiddies at bed time.

I'm not much a believer in ghosties myself, but the kids enjoy the tales.

With all the decapitated ghost tales in the book, I've got the kiddies trained now, so when I drive down the road and pretend my brakes don't work and yell, "where's my brakeman," they come back with, "he's off looking for his lost head!"

I like the photos in the book.
