Three Ghost Stories

Three classic short ghost stories by the master of spooky fiction: Charles Dickens. Includes The Signal-Man, a story about a railway signalman haunted by ghosts that are harbingers of terrible rail crashes. Dickens himself was involved in the Staplehurst rail crash on 9 June 1865, and undoubtably based some of the story on his experience, as well as the Clayton Tunnel crash that occurred in 1861.
