This report was made by a woman in the mid 1980s travelling between Barking and Upminster in Essex.
On a dark evening at around six o'clock the train slowed down and people were surprised to discover that standing next to the side of the tracks was a little old man, perhaps in his seventies, wearing an old-fashioned waistcoat and jacket and looking very anxiously at the train. As the train drew near he shone his green lantern from the small brick enclosure he was standing in as if to give an all-clear; the train went on its way
. The female passenger who made the report has tried to locate the old man, as she was surprised to discover someone of his age working in such an archaic way on that stretch of rail; she has been unable to do so. In fact even the wall and the arch he was standing in do not exist. The woman came to the conclusion that she had had the privilege of seeing a scene from the past and that the old man and his wall were part of an earlier railway system. From her description of the old man, looking anxiously at the train, it seems he was just as put out by the apparition as she was. Exactly what was the nature of the experience? Is there some report somewhere, yet to be discovered, from an elderly Victorian railway worker of the night when an amazingly futuristic train 'haunted' his stretch of line?
