Publisher's Summary

Thanks to the mindless actions of Teddy Deakin, a group of mismatched rail passengers find themselves stranded in a dark and isolated station, having missed the last connection of the night. Tales of superstition prevail as the local station master - unable to persuade them to leave - reveals that very night, 20 years ago, a train crashed leaving a number of passengers dead. Legend has it, that the station is still haunted as the train relives its final moments as it roars through the station to its demise. The passengers begin to panic as the body of the station master is found on the platform, and a mysterious young lady arrives, foretelling the oncoming of the Ghost Train…

    "The Ghost Train"

    This is an excellent comedy written by Arnold Ridley of Dad's Army fame. The story line is a little dated but the excellent cast bring it to life as though it has just been written. If you like vintage comedy this is well worth listening to.

    Story
    "A great story, though this recording has its flaws"

    Originally written as a stage play, and a great story it is, though it doesn’t appear enough thought was made when recording it as an audio play - if any changes were made at all. For example:

    Occasionally it was difficult to distinguish between some characters as they sounded the same - not enough vocal differentiation

    Towards the end a budgie is mentioned; only during the second time of listening did I pick up the briefest of mentions that Miss Bourne had with her a pet bird. It’s fine if watching it as a stage play as you can see it, but in audio you need to be told

    And lastly the actor who voiced Peggy Murdock was very flat - lacked charisma

    With some small changes and a different cast it could be truly wonderful audio play, but as it stands it is only a 3*.

    "Ghost Train"

    The most amateur and disappointing version of this play I have heard. The voices were too similar to distinguish from one another and it was a parody of the true play

    "From great playwriting to Private Godfrey"

    A great story of its time masterfully written, by a wonderful man. I salute you.
