The Hauntings of Ingatestone Railway Station
There must be something about the railway line at Ingatestone because there’s a couple of strange ghostly tales associated with it…
The first dates back to the 1980s when a young couple waiting for a train at Ingatestone Railway Station heard phantom footsteps climb the stairs of the station’s footbridge, cross the bridge and then descend the stairs on the other side of the railway line and eerily walk down the platform!
The other bizarre paranormal tale associated with the railway line at Ingatestone actually took place one night on a commuter train between Shenfield and Ingatestone…
In 2006 a freaked out commuter reported seeing a ghostly hand appear from behind him and start moving around violently close to his head.
Turning around to see who the hand belong to he was shocked to discover just a white middle aged man asleep in the train seat behind him.
He was so shocked because the ghostly hand he’d witnessed was Asian…
And not the hand belonging to a white middle aged man!
