A ghost train is one of those classic trains that used to be very popular with tourists but has recently come under fire by those who have claimed it is too slow and lacks safety features.
The ghost train has been used by hundreds of thousands of people in Britain and it has been described by some as a “classic example of an urban railway” and a “horror movie”.
It is often described as “the best thing in the world”, with trains travelling at up to 200mph.
But the UK’s railways watchdog is considering whether it should be banned, with critics saying it is unsafe and doesn’t meet the standards of the country’s safety regulations.
“A lot of people don’t realise how slow the train is and it’s actually quite a bit slower than a regular train,” said Paul Williams, chief executive of the Passenger Transport Association.
“[The ghost train] is a bit like a railway version of a movie – there’s a lot of movement and you’re going at full speed but it’s not quite as scary.”
The ghost of the past The original ghost train was created in the 1950s when a man called John Gorman, who had a reputation for taking trains from the outskirts of London to places like Brighton, was making the trip for a friend.
Gorman’s ghost train arrived in the early 1960s.
In the late 1960s, trains were slow and he wanted something more like a “normal” train, and he hired an engineer named William Geddes to develop a ghost train.
The train was designed to be a “railroad car”, which means it would take you straight to where you want to go.
Geddes had a good idea.
He had a prototype train with no doors, which would be a nightmare to take on the roads.
So, he started work on a train that would only take you to the station, and if you got stuck in traffic, the train would simply keep going.
When Gedds started work, there were a few problems.
It was too slow.
The train had to slow down to be able to move through traffic.
And, if there were no other cars around, it would only have enough room for two passengers.
So, there was no real safety features built in, Mr Williams said.
At the time, it was a pretty expensive project.
A £30 million deal was signed in 1966, and it cost £100 million to build.
The final price was £160 million, with £90 million spent on construction.
But by the time Gedd was finished, the railway was not yet operational, and passengers had been warned not to take it on the road.
Eventually, Gedd had to give up and return to London, where he had built a more conventional train, with doors.
It’s still a train, but in the 70s and 80s, the ghost trains became popular again.
Many people say they like trains and the fact that they have the capability to change speed, but Mr Williams says they are dangerous.
They’re going from 0-60mph in 5 seconds, he said.
That’s pretty fast, and they don’t have any kind of safety features, Mr Fenton said.
“I think if you had a train like that on the London Underground, it’s going to be extremely dangerous.”
There are now many more ghost trains, but the safety of the trains is still not always up to par.
Last month, the London Eye reported a man who was travelling on a ghostly train in the city was seriously injured.
The man, from a London suburb, was knocked unconscious and had to be taken to hospital.
He later died.
Other trains are more popular.
There is a Ghost Train tour, which was started in 2014.
