Halloween Weird Western Image o' the Day: Ghost Train

Trains are to the Wild West what ships are to Pirate stories.
By which I mean that they are cool and a major part of it, but you almost never see any action on them.
"Woooo Wooooo" went the ghost train...

Trains are great Western MacGuffins.  You can rob them, you can protect them from robbery, you can use the building of railroads as the plot thread of your ongoing television series...heck, PEG made a whole miniatures game based on the concept called The Great Rail Wars.
What better kind of train for the season than a Ghost Train?
