A Phantom Train Station (幽灵车站)
Below is an
urban legend from Japan popular around 2004 or so:
A woman was
travelling on last night train from Nagoya Station to Shin-Osaka Station. Normally
the train would stop at about every 5 to 6 minutes interval. This time this
last train of the night did not stop even after 15 minutes or so. The lady was
alone in the train compartment, no other passengers were seen.
uncomfortable, the lady picked up her handy and called her friend.
I’m on the last train and the train didn’t stop as it should usually. What
should I do?”
to stop at the next stop and contact me.”
minutes or so…)
It’s me again. The train is now stopping at Yu Yu Station. Can you come to
fetch me? I am scared. There is no one here in this station…”
on… You are at Yu Yu Station? There is no Yu Yu Station from Nagoya to
no answer on the other side.)
did happen to the lady?
It was said
that the lady had never ‘physically’ taken the train as she had met with an
accident and died on the spot while she was on her way to the train station!
Interesting but bizarre!
