26th October, 2002 and
it's that time of the year again when ghosties
& ghoulies emerge to haunt the Churnet Valley. To follow
are some of the scenes created at Cheddleton.
The trains were top and
tailed by 33102 and 80098.
The station booking
hall was suitably decked out.
Jack the Ripper was at
large and the long arm of the law was out to get him.
One of the station staff?
The mess hut was temporarily
Beetlejuice's dinner table
was full of tricks (and severed heads).
While some of the ghouls
were just, well...posers!
Uncle and Auntie Fester
were scaring babies.
Meanwhile back at the
station the cafeteria had been made over. Sadly this scene doesn't
show the dramatic effects of the ultra violet lighting.
Unfortunately Uncle Fester
happened to be on the train with us and insisted on paying frequent
visits to the compartments. There also seemed to be problems
with the lights when he was around. Hmmmm.......
Cheddleton tunnel and
cave paintings added to the atmosphere.
Driver Terry Essery doesn't
seem to be taking things very seriously.
