The narrator of Charles Dickens' short story befriends a lonely signalman, who coordinates passing trains near a tunnel on a deserted stretch of the tracks. During their conversations, the signalman confides a strange secret to the narrator: He has been seeing apparitions, and each appearance predates a terrible tragedy. The narrator does not believe in the paranormal and is worried for his new friend's mental health, even as the signalman warns that a new accident is about to occur. Stephen Critchelow creates a moody and foreboding ambiance that makes Dickens' spooky tale an absorbing listen.
This is a story from the Classic Ghost Stories collection.
Ghost stories continue to be a popular audiobook genre, and this group of four stories brings together some of the best. Reader Stephen Critchelow has spent a lifetime collecting and reading works like these and, with carefully chosen music, brings a strong sense of atmosphere to the recordings.
