The Ghost Train - a 1941 thriller/comedy film from the Union of Britian. Set during the Second Weltkrieg era, the film follows an eclectic group of British citizens which includes a stand-up comedian, a civil engineer, a People's Policewoman, a factory foreman and an elderly officer of the Home Guard. When they are forced to change trains at a lonely station in Cornwall, the stationmaster tells them a local legend of train that crashed into the river decades earlier, and that a phantom train appears on foggy nights, continuing its run. The story concludes with the warning that those who look upon it are driven mad or frightened to death.
After a few hijinks and scares, the protagonists discover that 'ghost train' is hoax used by a group of Royalists to smuggle weapons to Canada. By the end of the film, the plot is exposed, and the members of the fifth column are captured by members of the Home Guard and the Republican Army.
The film is still considered as a cult classic in the UoB to this day, with a reboot starring Orlando Bloom being developed.
