VICTORIA’S GHOST TRAIN

On this day …….. 13th of June 1939

The Victorian Railway Department’s ghost train will run again soon through dimly-lit stations, while planes overhead will try to spot it. The train has been fitted with dimmed lights to enable night trips to be made safely In the event of an enemy attack on Melbourne. The first trial was successful, but the authorities are anxious to know whether the train can be seen from the air.
