Those Septic Spectres

Tonight we have another story from retired Engine Driver John Anthony, this time about ghosts on a locomotive.

2013 National Railway Museum York - The Great Gathering - Class 40 pioneer D200Hi you lovely folks,

Seen any ghosts among your souvenir’s? I’m sure there lurks in some locomotives evil spirits, gremlins, sprites, lost souls. They sleep deep in their innards, waiting their chance to cause havoc then, CRASH!  Imagine barreling along on a type 40 English Electric “whistler”, when suddenly, the cab door flies open, then the other cab door flies open, then the nose door and engine room door flies open and you can’t close them because your single manned! It’s those septic spectres, folks, that hide in one’s souvenirs.



Many thanks to John for sending this in!  John’s contributions can be found on a dedicated web page (please click here.)
