I found this story , spooky at that , called The Ghost Train . It supposedly happened in 1908 Alberta to a fireman working the CPR. It is taken from S.E.Schlosser's book - Spooky Canada .
I wonder how many tales like this one are out there told around the wood stoves in the bunkhouse back in the day.
Maybe you have come across one or two in your time. Why not share one with us?
