Ghosts & Hauntings in Glasgow

Postby jim » Wed Apr 28, 2004 11:40 am

I know that everyone has their own story/places. Where and what?
Personally I'd fancy trying one of those 'stying in a haunted room with a camera/mic type thing.
a pair of stout boots, a stick, and away...

I know the Underground has it's fair share of ghost sightings and happenings,kelvinbridge and hillhead being top of the list
My only experience with the underground'ghosts'is working night shift in a basement next to the underground,hearing the steady clink of metal come and go at 4 in the morning.Found out later it was the night track man tapping each rail with his hammer on his nightly walk........or was it? 8O

How can there be ghost horses in the subway when there were never any real horses in the subway?

Maybe it was a Hidden Glasgow bulletin board poster in search of a missing platform?

Friend of mine in London has similar nighttime experience. He often thought there was someone in his room at night, inthe dark, but there was no one there. One night his girlfriend woke up and was sure she saw someone standing at the end of the bed. Cue shreik and light going on quickly. Needless to say there was no one there when the light went on.

BTW apparently there is a ghost of a fireman in the basement of the building I work in. Apparently he died in a fire in the building next door.
