About the Show/Event
Information for The Ghost Train at Barons Court Theatre, Inner London (Play). Arnold Ridley's classic drama was first produced in 1925 and filmed no less than three times. Better known as Private Godfrey in BBC's long-running Dad's Army, Ridley conceived the idea for this thriller horror on a deserted platform waiting for a train. The story begins when a young man accidentally strands six passengers at a small Cornish wayside station. Despite the stationmaster's weird stories of a ghost train, they decide to stay the night in the waiting room. Soon they regret this decision as a ghostly apparition terrorises the group. A detective hiding his true identity from the passengers soon discovers the real truth, but is it too late?
