The Ghost of Bincombe Tunnel, Dorset

Just to the west of Bincombe the mainline railway from London to Weymouth cuts through the hills by way of a tunnel. It is the tunnel that is haunted by a man who walks with stumbling tread and bowed head. More than one train driver has thought he has run down some hapless member of the public, only to find no sign of a body nor of anything that might have looked like a person. In 1991 a driver went so far as to call the police, but even the most dedicated search by the local constabulary could find nothing.

Perhaps this is the ghost of some unfortunate who was, indeed, run down by a train in Bincombe Tunnel.
