A RAIL37 Churnet Valley Railway picture report

 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 Wolfman.

  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 converted.

 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.
