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?Performers Calum Finlay (Teddie Deakin), Amanda Hadingue (Julia Price/Saul Hodgkin), Sam Alexander (Richard Winthrop), Ayesha Antoine (Elsie Winthrop), Javier Marzan (Miss Bourne/Herbert Price), Will Merrick (Charles Murdock), Lena Kaur (Peggy Murdock), Femi Elufowoju Jr. (John Sterling), Joanna Holden (Miss Bourne's Parrott/Jackson).
