something a bit strange happened this evening.. came out of work, headed down to the platform at Buchanan St UG (Outer Circle). Train pulls in totally empty. The driver then proceeds to open the doors on the opposite side of the train (towards the perspex barriers), close them and drive off without picking anybody up.. to say i was a bit miffed is an understatement

anyone have a clue as to what was going on?
Ah used tae be indecisive but noo ah'm nae sae sure.

I understand there's been a points failure at Ibrox in recent months.

*dammit, beaten by seconds!

The empty train opening the wrong doors and driving away may have been a ghost train. I know there is a ghost passenger on a bus route from Kilmarnock to Ardrossan.

That would be the Morgan Spiced coaches. There was 3 of them originally, re-upholstered for the sake of a couple of weeks advert. I think the outsides out the train we're covered in black too. And the entrance to the tunnels in each station had slogans such as 'Theres a presence coming'
