A Ghost Report from the St. Paul Daily Globe on February 17, 1893

51W+qO+32TL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_There are many, many ghost reports about haunted railroads in my collection, so many that I selected only the most interesting for the book version of Spectral Edition.

Here’s one I left out. The ghostly voice and backstory that might explain it are interesting, but there simply isn’t much here. In fact, the article ends with what seems like an over-reaction from the two railroad workers who were witnesses.

Maybe I’m wrong, but wouldn’t Dedman and Gavin want to investigate the haunting a bit more closely before being scared away?

For the reasons noted above, this article did not “make the cut” for Spectral Edition: Ghost Reports from U.S. Newspapers, 1865-1917. Featuring close to 150 of the scariest, strangest, funniest, and most intriguing ghost reports from my collection of over 300, the book is available at Amazon in the U.S. or Amazon in the U.K.

Each Wednesday at the Merry Ghost Hunter, I post another authentic ghost report.
