In this supremely atmospheric ghost story, the narrator, while investigating a dank and lonely railway cutting, meets the signalman who lives there. His new acquaintance appears to live under the shadow of an unbearable secret, haunted by an apparition whose appearance prefigures terrible rail accidents. Drawing on Charles Dickens' own experiences, it is both an important piece of rail history, and a sinister tale which will make you think twice next time you enter the quiet carriage.
