A long running success in London and on Broadway and packed with thrills, chills and laughter. In Maine near the Canadian border there's a legend of a phantom locomotive sweeping through a peaceful village leaving death in its wake. Rum and narcotic runners use this and the villagers' superstition to their advantage but a not as incompetent as he seems detective clears up the mystery of the specter and attendant deaths. His seemingly silly actions result in the apprehension of the evildoers and the little village and its station are finally at peace. For sheer, creeping mystery, it's a play without a peer.
THE GHOST TRAIN was first presented at The Eltinge Theatre in New York. Directed by Norman Houston.
