Rainhill Garrick Society presents the classic comedy-thriller, penned by Arnold Ridley, the writer and actor best-known as Private Godfrey in Dad’s Army.

A very silly young man accidentally strands six passengers at a small Cornish wayside station. Despite the psychic stationmaster’s weird stories of a ghost train, they decide to stay the night in the waiting room. Soon they regret this decision as ghostly and not so ghostly apparitions materialise, before the young man reveals the true reason behind the night’s events.
